      The cool checkerboard yard is actually a driveway, devised using turf pavers (from $2 per square foot; for stores). Basically shallow planters, these interlocking stone blocks can handle heavy traffic and accommodate topsoil and grass seed. You'll need to plant a durable variety like tall fescue or buffalo grass and, of course, excavate the site before laying the pavers. When it's time to mow, opt for a high setting.

    patio pavers

    A Truly Green Driveway Durable porous pavers are concrete or plastic blocks designed with holes that let you plant vegetation inside the blocks, creating a “living” driveway. Porous pavers are an environmentally friendly choice: They let rain pass through to the ground underneath, reducing runoff that makes your yard soggy and carries pollutants to waterways.

    Bob's Tip of the Day: Your driveway can either absorb water or shed it. Some driveway materials, like brick and pavers, are permeable because the little spaces between them allow water back into the ground where it belongs. A driveway that’s covered in a nonporous material like concrete or asphalt needs to be pitched in a way that directs water away from your home, or it needs a drainage trench along the side to divert water.
