Groundcover suggestions for shady backyard
We're currently watching the second round of St. Augustine sod wither away in our shady Austin backyard. It's covered by some large oaks and gets dappled sunlight most of the day.
I'd just as soon not have grass, but we do have a small child and two dogs who need some room to run and not get muddy or dusty every time they step outside.
Other than mulching over the lawn, can y'all help me with ideas to cover our backyard with a grass or grass substitute? Thanks.!
