Chamomile lawns actually pre-date lawns of neatly clipped fine grasses and have a long tradition in English gardens. The most famous chamomile lawn is the one at Buckingham Palace which dates from the reign of George V although they were also very popular with the Elizabethans.
Camomile is a low-growing aromatic herb which is tough enough to be walked on an looks very much like a grass lawn.
Providing you use the low growing flowering variety ‘Trenague’ your lawn will never need mowing and it releases a sweet fragrance when walked on (especially strong fragrance after rain).

Another advantage of a Camomile lawn over a grass lawn is that it does not turn brown in dry weather!
