Chamomile Lawn – Smells Good, Especially When you Walk on It

Savvy Housekeeping website shares an interesting concept for a low maintenance lawn….plant Chamomile.

Chamomile ( nobile ‘Treneague’) grows best in full sun and sandy loam light soils are recommended as a degree of moisture is necessary.

Avoid growing Chamomile in very dry, stony conditions or clay soil.

When planting out a chamomile lawn with purchased plants, space them 4-8 inches apart, depending on their size.

A newly planted chamomile lawn should not be walked on for at least 12 weeks, and traffic should be kept to an absolute minimum for the first year until fully established.

Chamomile lawns are not the ideal choice for a active family with pets become it can become patchy when walked on excessively.

This more a low maintenance option for yards with pathways…. you only have to mow twice a year.
