Front Walkway built out of inexpensive cement pavers, red lava rocks, and solar lights

Our home had a simple walkway with cement pavers, which proved to be a hassle when we mowed the lawn. We finished the walkway simply by digging up the grass, adding red lava rocks, flowers, and solar lights to boost up our curb appeal!

    Is this called 'floating' because it sits on top of the grass or is there still digging to be done?

    Lava rock looks good but very light weight and porous. Can’t use a blower after mowing cuz they would just blow into grass. Might be better to use concrete edging to contain the rocks or landscape edging is more affordable for a solution. Just a thought...or different rocks.

    Nice. Any easy pointers on how to prepare the ground to ensure the pavers are secure? I have a very, very small walkway to my driveway, and just want to able to walk to the truck without having to wait to put my heels on.
