I'm pretty much starting from scratch on the front garden, it is just stripped back to bare mud at the moment.
I have considered planting something other than grass as a lawn. It never gets walked on, and previously the lawn was very mossy and weedy It is on a slight slope and partial shade.
Does anyone have a lawn that is not grass?
See original post
Yes we DO!
Your situation is just about perfect.
You must have heard about the sweet smelling Chamomile lawn !!!
You can now get a low growing Chamomile lawn ( it's not to low but the affect and low maintenance and will take your cutter down to 3 or 4 times a year. You will want to do it twice a week in growing season I promise you.
Loads of my clients want this for lack of maintenance over the years and it's great.
It has proved itself to me but? It needs to be germinated and grow the seed on first. I have done this many times. Some work some do not. ( Im not sure why after 40 years)
It's a bit like a hair transplant / but not?
It takes effort and time + seed to grow The lawn you want.
Please have a go.
It takes 2 years in the greenhouse before you could possible plant at 2" apart to get a lawn.
PS. Sorry That is why I Had to change.
Chamaemelum nobile dwarf
How good is that un cut lawn
