Geranium wallichianum "Buxton's blue" aka "Buxton's variety" is an excellent low-growing hardy perennial which can be used as ground cover and has beautiful blue flowers.  I have this everywhere there is any soil showing!  Seeds come true too.

Never managed to keep it alive Bob whats your secret?

Dog wee is actually really good for your grass just way too strong. Make a point of wetting your lawn every evening and you will find instead of burnt patches there will be tufty areas of grass where it has grown better!
