Brooklyn, NY, small backyard. Tried to cultivate grass for years but often dies. Would love alternative ground cover. Ideally not waiting months for it to establish (young kids would love to be out there). Considering clover, thyme, mint, fescue... Prefer plants over seeds... Would love guidance. Even finding a gardener with similar focus may be challenging but we are open.
