Maintenance free cover for road ditches
I am seeking a maintenance free or such ground cover for two road ditches that line the front of my property against the road. I would like them to be drought tolerant, be able to handle walking on, keep weeds out, and of course accept a surplus amount of water if we ever get rain again...
I'm not sure what the best method will be considering I don't want it to take over the front yard. I just don't want to have to mow the ditches with a weed-eater...and the county frowns upon leveling the ditch so it could be easily mowed. I have heard about a series called "steppables" but am not aware if they work for my zone (5). I would also like the ground cover to not be too tall where it looks trashy.
