The Q&A Archives: Replacing grass for Herbs/fruits/vegetable

Question: I would like to grow creeping, low growing plants; herbs, vegetable, fruit; to replace grass and will provide enough cover to kill out the grass. I have wooly thyme and rosamary started and would like to increase the variety.

Answer: You've chosen the best plants already! You might consider Green Carpet (Herniaria
glabra), Potentilla Tabernaemontanii ?Nana?, Hummingbird Flower (Zauschneria latifolia) or Prostrate Germander (Teucerium ?Prostratum?). All grow about 4" tall.
