Chamomile, ivy alternatives to traditional lawn | Your own backyard
Jul 06 2010, 2:35 PM
Tired of mowing? Looking for some lawn alternatives? The Romans grew not only grass but all sorts of different ground covers. They perfected the chamomile lawn, which is still a popular substitute for grass in England. The chamomile lawn thrives on neglect, sun, and poor sandy soil; you might think of trying this alternative yourself. Chamomile stays wonderfully green during drought, and looks delicate and fairy-like, even though it can take a solid tromping. Seeds are available through many mail-order seed companies.
Ivy makes a wonderful dark green ground cover and can be interspersed with plantings of bright coloured flowers. Periwinkle (Vinca minor) is a wonderful ground cover that does well in both shade and sun, though sunny areas will take longer to grow and will never look as lush. All sorts of thyme are wonderful. Woolly thyme (Thymus pseudolanuginosus) makes you want to sit on it and maybe even stroke the silvery green fuzzy foliage. Creeping juniper (juneperus horizontalis) thrives in a sunny dry place and looks like one of its common names, a “Blue Rug.” Ask your local nursery. They usually have a wide variety of ground covers and specific recommendations for your particular needs.
