Answer: Dwarf Mondo Grass (Ophiopogon japonicus) only gets about 4-6 inches high and should be planted about that far apart in beds. However, if you are planting a large area, it will get expensive. You'll have to buy plants which cost $5 each. A better idea maybe to look at other non-lawn alternatives. There are a number of seed mixes on the market that include a mixture of herbs, flowers, and low-growing grasses. These still look green, but take less mowing and are "different". Your county extension service should be able to offer you some regionally specific alternatives. Good luck!
