Patch of grass

Thank you for the suggestions, I am a complete gardening novice so all ideas are much appreciated! Would like to make it neat and tidy, but also colourful and interesting. Really like the sedums and house leeks idea - the Gardeners' World website guidance suggests they are hardy and easy to grow which sounds perfect http://www.gardenersworld.com/plants/features/structural/growing-sempervivums/1114.html. Can anyone recommend any other plants which would grow well if I cover the area with gravel and cobbles?

Thank you!

Hi there

We've just moved into a new London flat which has a lovely garden at the back, but a messy patch of grass/weeds at the front (about 3m x 2m, sloped towards the flat, and catches the sun). We wondered what our options were for a low maintenance way of making it look nice without needing to use a mower, and without it blocking the light to the flat. The neighbours have covered theirs with ivy, but i'd appreciate some alternative suggestions before deciding whether to do the same.

Thank you!
