Lawn-Less Yard Solutions
Foot-traffic-friendly groundcovers that compete well with weeds and stay relatively short without mowing include mat-forming creeping thyme, grasslike blue sedge (Carex glauca), and mounding moss phlox (a good choice on hillsides where mowing is difficult).
Vertical garden of ferns! How about a variation of this leaning against the south side of the front yard or the north fence in the back yard?
