Which plants?

Hello everyone,
I've decided plastic plants just don't do it for me and would like to convert my aquarium to a planted one.
I have set out a plan, priced everything I need, I'm now at the point of deciding which species of plant to go for.
I'm most likely having a piece of wood as the centre piece, upping my light so I'll have 2-2.5 watts per gal, and looking into co2 injection.
Substrate poss Eco complete or flourite.
My tank size: 60cm by 30cm by 30cm
What I'm interested in would be:
1. Nice carpet foreground plant to act like grass
2. A type of moss for the drift wood
3. Medium (middle ground) plant
4. A background plant
I need them to be beginner friendly as I'm new to this, also to be low light species.
Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated and well received
Thanks for reading
