Ideas needed for wooded, piney, sandy soil
I'm in northern Michigan. Just purchased a house in a wooded subdivision, mostly pine, some hardwood. Along the edges of the woods the grass just isn't growing. I'm looking for ideas on how to spruce up these problem areas with the right grass or ground cover. I have a huge lawn in front that's enough to mow, so the less mowing here the better. Would centipede grass be ideal? Any other landscape suggestions welcome. I just want to keep it simple and natural looking.
Those sticks are fallen birch branches. I thought it would look pretty there as a border, but it just ended up looking like a pile of sticks.
This worn path leads up to the back deck. I'd like to put in a stone walkway here. Should I leave the rocks and whatever vegetation that is? It grows everywhere here. I don't mind it really.
The bird bath and feeder are being replaced.
