Curb planting suggestions anyone?
The city of Savannah decided to put in a sidewalk. This left us with a bare patch of dirt by the curb which has filled in with weeds, moss, and the stray grass. Hubby and I keep coming up with ideas on what to plant other than grass and keep discarding the ideas.
1- It is of course, by the street with constant traffic.
2- It is the dryest part of our yard
3- When it rains this is where the runoff goes to, so, it can get a whole lot of water all at once
4- Whatever we plant has to be short since a tall plant will interfere with line of sight for our cars to back into the street
5- We "neglect" the front yard. Most of our efforts go to the back yard since this is where we spend most of our time
6- I am sick of Liriope. I spend more time "weeding" it out than taking out any weed in our yard.
7- We are on a mission to get rid of our lawn, so, no new grass planting allowed.
8- We live in Savannah and our soil is either sand or clay and gets mold, mildew, or moss making the top impermeable at times.
