I am looking to try a lawn free garden. The previous owner put down Astro turf and it’s coming out. One part of my garden next to a pergola am hoping to use gravel. I can’t at back of the garden as surrounded by trees which drop constantly. So thinking about stones with creeping thyme. Huge project and needs to be done fairly cheaply . Am a pensioner and although fit can’t bend over much. So any suggestions welcome. Veg grown in planters at waist level .
