Brick pathway in edible front yard

I feel I need to mention how the experiment with the edible front yard went. It went well enough but I could have used more tomatoes. Oregano is an aggressive plant. It just took over and I thought mint was bad. Where I planted mint, it stayed in place. But it planted the mint in spots where I would be walking on it regularly, so it is busy trying to survive vs taking over the yard.
I have some bald spots in the yard where I walk, and I don’t know what can survive a regular pounding, is edible and can deal with so so light. The thyme I planted in my path just didn’t work out. The tarragon died from being stepped on one to many times. Peppermint does not like everyday traffic.
Maybe I need more brick.
