Hello to all,
We are having 1.25" thick travertine pavers installed [Versaille pattern] as our decking around the pool, spa, back porch, walkways and summer kitchen area. Total sq ft is approx 1500.
Approx 80% of the pavers will be installed right up to the foundation of the house and other hard structures, while 20% will border up to St. Augustine grass.
The backyard relative to the house is not sloped or pitched real high, therefore, it's almost flat. Where the pavers border the grass, is there something that looks good and performs well from keeping out anything from the grass side [grass, soil, other] onto the pavers and potentially going into the pool? I am also trying to prevent weed eaters [from the yard guys] to propel debris into the pool or pavers that will be blown into the pool.
We used all travertine based stones for everything, have all angles [as opposed to rounded edges], stucco house, 4 columns w 2 being scuppers and two firebowls, 9'x9' spa w sloped over flow in deep end [5.5'], columns from summer kitchen w Austin Stone, Austin Stone based fireplace and covered kitchen area of 22W x 30L. A stereo system w 55" HDTV & (4) 9" ceiling speakers, 2 pool rock speakers, 36" gas built-in FireMajic Grill/Rotisserie, Refrig, SS Sink, built-in trash-can, 3ft x 18ft granite counter top, (2) 1' x 7' granite benches btwn fireplace and columns, 22 LED lights. fans, etc. Just trying to give you an idea of the site so if you have some recommendations, it will fit in w the design and atmosphere.
As always, thank you for your feedback...pics coming as soon as we get the pavers in and I do NOT in mud/clay anymore.
