Hello. I know very little about grasses but wondered if they might be what I need? My property was mostly appalachian mtns- woodland. However, the previous owners cut all the large trees around the house and cut a border around the grass that grows over the septic. The border area which was once shaded by large trees is now fully exposed to sun and the weeds have EXPLODED! My question is: though I was thinking of moss or fern for ground cover to slow the weeds I don't think this will work in full sun and since the area is quite large I don't think I could afford this. Would grasses work well here and if so which ones? I would like to avoid fast growing species that take over and I def. want to stick to native...maybe something that could provide the goldfinches with seed in the fall? Are there any grasses that I could start from seed over the winter?
Thanks for ANY input!
