    The water funnels from neighboring property under the gate. Then flows over her paver patio. I suggested metal edging but she wants something more natural. She suggested monkey grass but felt it would be to tall so I said dwarf mondo grass is like monkey grass but only 4" tall.

    Just a thought - Why not fix the drainage issue first say, with some sort of french drain? Nor sure a ground cover will keep water off the patio.

    One other thought about mondo grass - it spreads and will be into the lawn at some point.

    Use something like this. It's natural stone and is easy to work with.
