groundcover for shade, that you can walk on?
Ok, since you guys are such a wealth of information, I'm going to ask another question. We have an area of the back yard, between the screened in porch and the back fence that is VERY shady from oak trees. It also has a swingset/fort in the middle of it that my son and his friends play on. Currently it is all dirt and oak leaves. (was that way when we moved in 6 months ago). Is there anything that would grow there, even sparsly, that would look better and be easy care? Even if it wouldn't grow directly under/around the swingset because of the kids playing, we could put mulch there and some kind of ground cover around it. Maybe even a mulch path to and from if need be. But I don't want to mulch that whole half of the yard, especially as the dog wan't pee on mulch, she's too well trained to go on grass/plants.
