low-maintenance groundcover

hello fellow dirt lovers! i've been gone from this community for a very long time but i have some gardening questions that i know someone must be able to answer. our backyard is currently a patch of mud (about 15x20ft). i'm only planting a small amount of vegetables and i'm really not sure what to do for the rest of it. i won't be around for the summer and my roommates are much too lazy to maintain a grass lawn. i've done some research about alternatives and i've heard that creeping lilyturf and barren strawberry (waldsteinia ternita) are both excellent and require very little work. how do I go about acquiring these? what's the best way to get them to spread? has anybody experienced either of these plants? are there better alternatives? thanks!
