Must read this book, as there is no way I can ever mow our front lawn without putting myself in bodily danger, and it is looking shaggy and sad, like that house on the street that the neighbors always whisper about.

Thyme Lawn - low maintenance & tough turf alternative
Wooly thyme, among others, makes a perfectly behaved lawn alternative. Sweet smelling, drought tolerant and never needs mowing or fertilizing. What could be better? The feel of it on bare toes is a textural treat, and the look of a happy thyme lawn adds romance and an established feel to the xeric garden. Plant some among pavers too.
