Thyme Lawn - low maintenance & tough turf alternative

Wooly thyme, among others, makes a perfectly behaved lawn alternative. Sweet smelling, drought tolerant and never needs mowing or fertilizing. What could be better? The feel of it on bare toes is a textural treat, and the look of a happy thyme lawn adds romance and an established feel to the xeric garden. Plant some among pavers too.

5 lawn substitutes. I like the idea of micro-clover for the lawn under the beech tree.

Mexican Thread Grass is a soft, billowy grass with fast growth and low water needs, making it ideal in the xeriscaped garden.

Easy ideas that make your yard pop

Grass Alternative: If your lawn area is not a high-use part of your yard, there are several varieties of clover that make an excellent alternative to a grass lawn. Clover requires no chemical fertilizers to grow, infrequent mowing and is inexpensive to plant. Your clover lawn will stay green even during the driest parts of summer, and the deep root system helps it grow with little to no water. Although it is not as durable as grass, you can sit and walk on your clover lawn without problems.
