I will be exiling the chooks from the center of our yard,  and growing a lawn where they once ruled.
I was thinking about everything from chufa to  alfalfa, but I'm probably a poor judge of what qualifies as "lawn".

My wife is down with clover, dandelions and violets  and simply wants something pretty,low maintenance  and walkable.
Since I dominate the rest of the  yard, I really want to give  her what she wants.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Clover, dandelion, violets, and narrow leaf plantain do great together.

J davis nailed it. And, bonus, I first encountered this mix in northern kentucky. I love how my folks in louisville have lawns that are nothing but clover, violet, dandelions and plantain. It's awesome and makes a great lawn

If they grow where you are - I'm from the UK - I'd recomend daisies (bellis perennis), self-heal, wild yarrow, clovers, black medic and buttercup. My lawn has those with a bunch of other things, but those are the ones I'd recommend!
