What else can you use for a ground cover for..
Other than gravel and mulch, what else can be used as a ground cover to cover a large area? Weeds are growing there now, which my husband keeps mowed. People think it's grass but there weeds. I have made raised beds and a large bed against the fence. I have trees planted and plan to put lots of large containers on this area, I also have a garden shed.. I had been thinking of gravel all along but have read where some say no way to gravel. I like the "clean" look of gravel. We are going to build a pergola and put flagstone down as the floor. Gravel would look nice around the flagstone but is there something else we can use? With mulch I'll have to add more every year. Any suggestions?
