Hi, I am looking for very low growing plants that would be suitable as an alternative to grass for a lawn.



Chamomile is one plant that springs to mind, Jackie. How much wear is the lawn likely to get?

Link below to alternative ideas to having a lawn at all - there is a section on alternative plants you can use instead, together with other ideas which aren't plant related.

My friends had creeping thyme which spread over their patio, it had beautiful lilac flowers and smelled wonderful when walked on.
