Natural Stone Sidewalk - Knowledgebase Question

St. Louis, MO
Question by buddysowell

I have a stone sidewalk that I would like to plant some kind of low growing hardty plants, herbs, or whatever to fill in between the stones. The location is fairly dry with late PM sun only. I'm trying to get an "established" look like the sidewalk has been there for a hundred years.


Am I kidding myself?

A reasonably fast growing plant for your stone sidewalk is wooly thyme. You might also try creeping thyme, Virginia creeper or one of the smaller sedums. To get an established look in a relatively short time you can plant plugs close together and water frequently during their first year. These plants are hardy, take some foot traffic, and are reasonably pest-free.
