The Colorful Plant That'll Keep Unwanted Pests Out Of Your Yard
Red creeping thyme offers an abundance of nectar that attracts pollinators and is also great at repelling unwanted critters like rabbits, deer, mosquitos, and rodents.
Once planted, the seedlings will start developing independently without mowing, and their self-growing abilities prevent weeds from spreading on your lawn.
Installing a red creeping thyme lawn as an alternative requires removing the existing grass and building a foundation for the plant to thrive, which can be laborious.
Another drawback is the cost and time involved. It can be expensive to strip and plant the seeds, and it takes seasons for them to grow fully.
Use hard surfaces like pavers or cement walkways to prevent your thyme from overgrowing. Rest assured, knowing it won’t harm your other plants nearby.
