Paver Stone Basketball Court

Zaccon(Zone 4)August 5, 2005

I have several questions - does anyone have any suggestions on what I can plant around the perimiter of our new paver basketball court? It is in a sunny location most of the day. I'd like something that can withstand possible foot traffic and basketballs. The plantings will be on a gradual slope, 4 feet wide, around 2/3 of the court, which extends into the yard.

Should I put mulch, groundcover, shrubs? If I do mulch, will it blow all onto the court and yard or can I "hold" it into place on a gradual hillside?

Thanks for your help!

I would be worried the mulch would blow in the wind or wash away in the rain on a hillside of any slope. I have a very very slight slope from the back of my house to my patio, and the mulch constantly washes from the bed at the back of the house onto the patio.

How about Stepables? If you haven't heard of them, they are groundcovers that are tolerant to being stepped on. Just do a search on google for their website.
