Planting Creeping Thyme Between Pavers

Posted by charles1218 8 (Alabama) (My Page) on

I need some advice on planting creeping thyme between pavers on my front walkway. The walkway is made of concrete 1 foot square pavers with a little more than an inch between them. The gaps are filled with gravel. Over the years the gaps have filled in with weeds growing in the gravel. A week ago I pulled up the weeds and ordered flats of creeping thyme plugs. My question is whether I should try to remove all the gravel and replace with soil, or just dig out the gravel where I plant the plugs at the corners of the pavers.

It will fill in faster if u remove the gravel.

Thanks. We scraped out the graven down a couple of inches and then mixed up some half-and-half soil-sand mix to fill in.
