What to plant under Live Oak?
I've been trying to figure out what to plant under our live oak in the backyard. As you can see in the pic below, the previous homeowner covered this area with mulch. I've since removed all the mulch, and it's now just dirt, and the bushes at the back are gone as well.
The easiest solution would just to get the St. Augustine to fill it in. Can you buy St. Augustine sod this time of year?
If I were to plant something, it'd need to be able to cover the whole area, and take well to raking when the live oak drops its leaves. That's originally why all the mulch got pulled up.
