Hi, My name is Lyle and I am new to this group. I am glad I found this forum, too.
I have a question that I hope someone can shed light on.
I have an area along the front (northern) side of my house that will get approx. 6 hours of direct sunlight each day during spring and summer months. The area I am working with is 10'X30'. I want to first cover this area with a good quality black plastic and then top coat the plastic with approximately 4-6" of soil. Is there a lawn grass, or ground cover that I can plant in that amount of soil thickness that will survive year round?
My problem is water seeping into my basement in that area. I removed the shrubs from the space and I compacted additional soil sloping it away from my house for approx. 10' out and then covered that area with plastic and I have solved my water seepage into basement issue. But, I now want to leave the plastic and cover it with grass/ground cover if feasible.
Any ideas from you guys would be greatly appreciated.
