I wish to make a bold design (cresent shape) within a lawn area of something colourful, lasting, low maintenance and low growing.Scented would be good too.

Try Thyme. Loads to choose from very scented and you can cut it and walk on it.

There's a variegated one, too, or a gold-leaved one. Bees love them!

Thyme is a very good one but another idea would be Ajuga, not so sure if it is scented, but very attractive and evergreen too. i have a variety that flowers twice a year.

Or Heathers? There are species for both acid and alkaline soils. Some are fragrant.

good thinking Spritz. another couple to add would be Rock Cress (Arabis), or Houseleek (Sempervivum), or Sedum - loads to choose from there..
