Stepping stones edge the driveway, with elfin thyme (Thymus serpyllum ‘Elfin’) providing soft tufting in the pockets between the stones. The summertime bloomer tolerates drought as well as light foot traffic. See how to create a neighborly front yard

Sweet thyme encouraging to bees

Creeping thyme around wooden rounds that I also can cut and bits of broken tiles or concrete (might get free) could go across my lawn and I could get rid of the grass if we build a garage

Entice the bees For a white mat form, opt for Thymus serpyllum ‘Snowdrift’, which has whorls of two-lipped white flowers in the summer. Thymus serpyllum ‘Minor’ is an evergreen with tiny, rich green-grey foliage. In the summer months, that becomes smothered with mini purple-pink blooms, which join together to form a block of bright colour. For a good, bushy thyme, often used in cooking, look for Thymus ‘Silver Posie’, which has white-margined leaves and pale-pink flowers. Thyme thrives in well-drained, dry, sunny positions, so make sure it doesn’t become waterlogged. Another scented creeping plant, often used in the place of a lawn, is the herbaceous chamomile. The aromatic leaves form a dense mat, and daisy-like white flowers are produced in the summer. If planted in shady areas, the lawn will become patchy, so choose open, sunnier sites. Only trim the flowers in late summer to prevent dead patches, and don’t walk on a newly planted chamomile lawn for at least 12 weeks.

Entice the bees Using sweet-smelling creeping thyme as a ground cover will help to attract bees, as well as create scented mounds to brush past.
