If you're sick of your high-maintenance lawn, discover a wide array of good-looking plants you can use as grass substitutes.

Red creeping thyme transforms any lawn area into a breathtaking scene, especially when bright reddish blooms appear in early summer. This thyme forms a dense mat that withstands moderate foot traffic. Foliage is evergreen and turns bronze in winter. Use it around stepping stones, a flagstone patio, on slopes or to edge planting areas. Give plants a spot in full sun with well-drained soil. Creeping thyme is deer-resistant and hardy in Zones 3 to 9. Shear plants after flowers fade in midsummer to promote bushy, well-branched plants.
