The easiest way to assure no ants in pots is to put a piece of landscape fabric in the bottom over drainage holes. Water can get out but bugs can't get in.

All of these alternative lawn plants will not survive heavy traffic. If to be walked on occasionally then you could try some of the low growing thymes.

Looks like a water beetle of some sort. Does she have a pond?

Shame you're not nearer Clueless. Could pass it on to one of my less well off customers.

Probably wrong but do you grow Solomons seal? The white bits on the right hand root look like it.

Just identified it as Oxalis Corniculata, now wondering if anyone has had any success removing it. 

When I managed a nursery they were sent in as bedding plants can you believe it?!

If you dig make sure the soil is nice and moist and workable. The roots go deep for such an innocent little plant and they will come back. Dig down and ease out slowly. Only way to do it. If you don't want to use chemicals

Hi Heather  you can pretty much do what you like with them. They are very vigorous and hard to kill off so if you want to cut back go ahead!

Liseals no don't bother 

Artful yes. Will only attract slugs nothing else and they are good in compost heap 

With compost heaps the list of no's is far smaller than the list of yesses. If it will rot fairly quickly, has no horrid chemicals in it, won't attract vermin and is not a perennial weed root chuck it in!!!!

I know someone is going to think of something I've not covered and come back at me lol!
