Best plants for your garden

Why Plant Thymus?

Thyme plants (Thymus) are an excellent small-scale groundcover for the low-water garden. Thyme can be used as a colorful, low-maintenance replacement for small patches of lawn. Use one variety, or intermingle patches of different plants. Thyme lawns are typically best for smaller spaces less than 200 sq. ft. and they prefer climates of the western U.S. (Thyme dislikes hot, humid summer weather.) So stop mowing and replace your turf grass with low-maintenance thyme!
