In my earlier message about grass pavers, I forgot to mention where part of the funds for the work on our central path came from. We received a $10,000 grant from Cool Communities Coalition of the State of Utah (I hope I'm not mangling their name) to act as a demo project for urban heat mitigation, since the grass pavers should be a lot cooler than most other surfaces we could have used to pave our required emergency vehicle access. Thank you, Cool Communities (and thank you, Vaughn, who went grant hunting and bagged it for us!). If I remember correctly, by the time topsoil and plants are figured in, the grass pavers were slightly more expensive per square foot than the brick pavers we used on the rest of the path, and the labor costs were several times the cost of the materials.
