Groundcover for sandy soil
Today the big trench behind my house was finally filled in and smoothed over! This is a great day! And it only took a year to get the builder to do it!
Okay, I'll try to calm down. I need to know what kind of groundcover would be good for this space. They filled with a very sandy clay-mix (I have all South Carolina red clay in the rest of the yard), and I'm wondering about erosion control. Reading some of the posts here, it sounds like people don't like vinca vine -- could I ask why that is? I guess I'm looking for something that will grow fast in shade, and will help with erosion control. The rest of the yard will be the showplace (one day, I hope), not this area. I'd love to not have to amend the soil at all, but is that possible?
Many, many thanks. You all are so good to give advice to those of us here on the learning curve.
