Thyme lawn

WaysideWayside Posts: 845


I've an area about 10ft square that borders a yew hedge (young).

We are thinking about filling in the bare earth with thyme or something low growing and spreading that isn't grass around pavers and small patio area.

In time, the yew will cast shade.  But I'd be happy to swap out for ajuga or something else if it can cope.

What's the most economic way to do this?

Any other low growing carpets that you'd recommend?  Could mix and match.

    Or maybe a chamomile lawn..

    If the area is south facing and dry then thyme may be your best bet, if not see what you think about using chamomile
