I too am on a quest to find substitutes for mulch and turf. I have been sucessful with two ground covers that are also herbs: tilo and viola. Both plants have a delicate flower; tilo does best in the sun and viola is great in the shade.

I sure add for other readers that I live in Central Florida, zone 9b.
