Turfstone pavers for patio floors!?

As we gear up to redo our patio in preparation for the warmer months, I’m paying very close attention to the floors of the outdoors lately. Would I love to cover my whole patio in cement tile à la Moroccan Riad? Uh, yeah. But since I don’t have an extra 15K lying around, that ain’t happening. I’ve been on the look out for a more affordable solution, and while at LACMA a couple of weeks back, this turfstone caught my eye. You get the pattern punch a bit of green to boot. Installation is not as labor-intensive as tile is, and overall it’s a much more affordable solution.

And while I’ve never seen it done, I can imagine growing planties other than grass in the in-between spaces — like how cute would drought tolerant ice plants look in here for an area that gets less foot traffic? And while I’ve never seen them in other shapes besides squares or diamonds, wouldn’t it be neat to experiment with other shapes too and patterns? I’d love to see some turfstone pavers creating polka dots, or even more elaborate motifs! Wouldn’t that be fun?! What do you think? Do you like the idea of a patio floor covered in these pavers?

    i love the look but wonder at the practicality. It’s difficult to judge the width of those holes. Would chair legs and heels get stuck? Or is this for those zones where there is no foot traffic? It is cool, though.

  2. I love these pavers but agree with Deb above, it can be hard if you’re moving furniture around. If you have fixed or built-in furniture, I’d say go for it. If not, I would use it for a border or pathway.

    Maybe you could build and color a concrete floor? Or wilden deck. Like here: https://www.pinterest.de/pin/466122630178582101/
