Way back when I was in college, it was a favorite pastime to go to the local park and walk barefoot.  I loved the feel of the plants on my toes!  Back then, I had never heard of grounding.

I like to dreams about having a walkable area for grounding.  Hey, a girl can dream can't she?

Here are some plants that might be suitable for walking barefoot or surrounding a grounding area.

Creeping Thyme, Thymus serpyllum

This has been on my wish list for a long time and it is drought resistant.


Creeping Veronica, Veronica filiformis

I love the color of the flowers!


Corsican Mint, Mentha requienii

This is pretty.


Snow in Summer, cerastium tomentosum

I love the white flowers that make it look like snow in summer!


Catnip, Nepeta cataria

Cats love this one, too!


Scotch Moss, Sagina Subulata Aurea

I love moss and this would be so nice to walk on.


These are my favorite choices though there are several others to choose from.

These are a few to give you some inspiration and to get you thinking about what are the best ground covers and plants to walk on?

That sounds like great toe therapy.
