ground cover for 8-12 inches between chain link fence and wall

Hello everyone. I am looking for ground cover ideas for the 8-12" space between my chain link fence and the rock wall that runs along my driveway. I am in zone 7a in Nashville, TN. The area runs north to south and is in full sun (in fact, what shade it does get will be eliminated soon when the dead silver maple that allows for dappled sunlight in some areas comes down.) I have between 40' and 50' to cover and realize this may take awhile. I'm open to using one cover continuously or using varying types and would like some winter interest. I'm not particular about a flower or color but I'm not interested in vines or anything that will grow on the fence as I have plenty of garden beds and other fence for that! My neighbor maintains the other side of the fence and can mow right alongside it.

Thanks so much for any suggestions! This area has been puzzling me for some time now!
