Lawn alternative

balianoAugust 25, 2006

I'm considering Wooly Thyme or Roman Chamomile as a grass alternative for an area about 200 sq ft, full sun, moderate drainage (not clay), light traffic. Any pros or cons to either selection, especially gotchas?

Don't know anything about Roman Chamomile, but I planted some woolly thyme last fall, along with other thyme (pink chintz) - and whereas they are all healthy, the woolly thyme really took off splendidly to cover a much larger area (maybe about 2 feet in diameter, from a plug size that was planted) - I like it too as it's a gray-green, not bright green. Doesn't flower (since I've had it anyway), and is very low maintenance. I'm getting some more this fall.
