One solution is to use special polymeric sand that binds together when wetted. You can buy the polymeric additive and mix it with dry sand yourself, or you can buy premixed bags of sand. Premixed sand is the most convenient solution. A bag ($24) covers about 120 sq. ft. on paver bricks. Check with landscape suppliers and home centers. Make sure there is no sand on the surface of the brick or stone before you wet it. Read more: http://www.familyhandyman.com/landscaping/landscaping-tips-for-your-backyard/view-all#ixzz3Xp08sDzL

Miscanthus Add an airy, delicate look to your landscape with graceful miscanthus. Its arching foliage and feathery summer plumes make it a great late-season privacy screen (it can reach 8 feet tall or more) or a soft backdrop for your favorite perennials. Name: Miscanthus sinensis
Privacy Screens, Yard, Ornamental Grasses, Plants, Landscape, Ornaments Grass, Flower, Mornings Lights, Gardens Tips
Use Ornamental Grasses in Your Landscape- Add Privacy-Tall grasses in a large grouping can be a perfect solution for screening an unpleasant view. For best effect, choose tall species such as big bluestem (it can reach 6 feet or more), moor grass (it can reach 7 feet or more), or ravennagrass (it can reach 12 feet or more). Garden Tip: Keep in mind that you'll cut back ornamental grasses in early spring, so there will be a month or two while your grasses are growing that you won't have a screen.
Miscanthus is one of the most prized of ornamental grasses, and one particular cultivar, 'Morning Light', sums up much of its appeal: This grass is stunning when backlit by the sun, either rising or setting. Statuesque miscanthus makes dense clumps of arching grassy foliage in an assortment of widths, decoration, and fineness, according to variety. Erect, dramatic plumes of flower spikelets rise among the leaves or well above them and last beautifully through the winter. Site miscanthus with good drainage and plenty of space in sun or light shade.
