lazy way to cover ground...a bad idea?
I have mature crab apple at the corner of the front lawn. It has a wooden fence along its east side, sidewalk along the north and lawn west and south. The previous owners severely neglected the area underneath of it. It was full of suckers, creeping charlie and various other weeds. This past fall we cleaned it out down to bare dirt but im sure it will begin to fill back in with weeds the second the weather warms up. I have so much else to do this spring that i am seriously considering dumping a bag of wildflowers, evening primrose and blue bonnets on it as soon as we get a period with no snow on the ground. This area almostnever gets eatered and is far from any hoses! Im hoping the mix could help smother out weeds, smell nice and look somewhat improved. My concerns are that the eeeds will just over take and ikl have a weedy mess with an occasional flower and that especially the primrose could possibly spread under the neighbors fence or into their strip if lawn that goes up to the trees dripline/ bed border. What do you guys think?
