Relocating Pavers & Adding Turf Strips


Hi there
My customer had me restrain his 2 by 2 concrete pavers on his driveway last month and now would like to move them and remove a few of them to add turf strips between them leaving 15 blocks of 4 by 4 (4 pavers square) with 6" of artificial grass between them.
I'm new to pavers.
My thought was to move them, pour concrete between and glue the grass down to the concrete. I've moved 1 of them already, compacted under very well. Do I need to put more sand down under the pavers when I move them? I made 6" wood strips to form the areas receiving concrete. Am I missing on how to approach this or has anyone done this on a driveway.
Thanks

Time to find a new customer, unless you're planning to charge accordingly for all the headache and artistry.

Sorry I think I was a bit vague. This customer of mine was eager to get started on doing their driveway I needed HOA approval to do the turf so first l did the color after I stripped it and then sealed it and about a week later the HOA approved this section of this project.
The customers are super easy to work with and it has been a fun project so far. I'm a stone girl, but concrete and driveways are contagious and I am blessed to be passed around in this neighborhood. I'll try to upload some pictures .
