Grass and the invasive groundcovers are the only ones that tolerate heavy foot traffic. If the ground isn't wet and soft, several groundcovers can take occasional walking, say once or twice daily. These include thyme and other small-leaved plants like oregano, sedums and Campanula poscharskyana. If you live in a wet area, mosses tolerate some traffic as well. If you place stepping stones, options for plants that can grow between the stones increase since they aren't taking a direct hit from walkers. Avoid using plants like creeping jenny and ajuga unless you know they are not invasive in your area. Check your region's invasive species network for a current list.
