I live in USDA Hardiness zone 11a-- very temperate, coastal southern california. I have 2 acres of raw land and have worked on a permaculture design plan. I have two medium-small areas of family play space that I want to plant lawn and I am very tempted to try the following combination: german chamomile, strawberry clover and yarrow? or Peaceful Valley Herbal Lawn Mix? Has anyone tried this? Any experience with water usage? growing speed?
Tips would be much appreciated! I would like to plant very soon--

I mixed these two varieties and seeded them in late August. Their contents are similar to what you mentioned, although mine contains a large portion that is grass.

I posted the results so far here:

I'm pretty happy with it and haven't watered it since September. Unfortunately here in Western Oregon the dry season doesn't come until June, so until then I won't be able to properly report on their drought tolerance.



Edited for clarity.
