I want to lay pavers down, and know how to do that part. But I want to lay thyme or moss down between the pavers. Can these just be put into the sand that the pavers are placed on or do you have to do something else? thanks

Creeping thyme or moss will grow in sand but will root better and perform better if you mix in a little compost while you're planting them. The compost will help hold water which will keep the plants healthier during the hot summer weather. Just use a stick or pencil to poke the compost into the soil between the pavers then set your plants in. Best wishes with your project!
