I think the carpet plants are fine as is. IMO adding a tall growing plant near the back would help add some depth, but it looks good.

I have two carpets as well, and am trying to get moneywort to carpet. It's all preference! I have mine in rows, though I'm sure as it spreads ill have to weed it out and replant..
