Shady but highly-trafficked area

Posted by cynthiainsouthfla 10a (My Page) on

Hey, I wonder if any of you has an idea for a problem area in my yard. It's under a live oak, so the grass does not grow well, and we have mostly dirt there, so it is not very attractive. However, it is in a strip of land between the front driveway and the side yard. If we make it a path of some kind, it won't really lead anywhere, so it would look wierd, plus it's not a very large area, but it's along the main route to the back yard, so it has to be walkable in some way. Ideas?

Might try Mondo Grass. It doent need much water or light and can take some walking on. Not good for a lot of foot trafic but can handle a fair amount. Could put down stepping stones for the walkway and mondo grass around. It is rather slow growing and comes in different sizes.

Just an idea.

Good luck,
