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!

    How did you do that?

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

    Can you please share more about "floating" ?

    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.
