One pinner said shedid this but used squares of outdoor green carpet. If you level your ground first then lay plastic down n use concrete squares n then outdoor carpet squares you get this same look. It's not hard to maintain that way. That way you don't have to move patio furniture n now n then put it back. Ours looks just as good as this.

Plant a Knot Garden Herbs and tidy hedges such as boxwood are most commonly found in geometric knot gardens. Try adding extra interest with grasses. Here, a golden sedge is a stunning contrast to dark green boxwood. Test Garden Tip: Tight, mounding grasses work best in knot gardens. Avoid grasses that are too loose and open; they can make the knot garden feel messy because of their loose habit.
Garden patio...love the view...no way could I ever find a home with that kind of arched wall...but still, I love it!
grassy paving - put mother-of-thyme or other low-growers that don't need mowing, and use it for parking lots instead of asphalt. Most wil survive. What doesn't - put asphalt there only. And you will end up with a less heated, more water-absorbent surface, much healthier and greener.
Love the checkerboard paving - if you were careful about the 'grass' you planted, you wouldn't need to mow (e.g. microlaena, chamomile, thyme, creeping mint, even violas...) I've always loved this idea, but having to continually maintain it put me off. Love the idea of a ground cover that wouldn't need to be mown
