About ground coverings in shade in zone 6b
(Charleroi, Pennsylvania, USA)
Ajuga 'Gunsel Blue"
Hello. I need a ground cover that stays very short, grows in shade and I need to know how deep I need to put edging in the ground to keep it from growing into the mean neighbor's yard, please?
I was looking at Vinca minor in hopes it would stay on the short side opposed to 6 inches tall. I was curious about chicks and hens too. I need as low maintenance as possible. Do not care if it takes 2 or 3 yrs to fill in blank areas and I like short so creatures cannot hide in it. Can ya comment as well as make recommendations.
PS. I have no pics but basically we are talking about 9 ft wide 25 feet long side yard to my house that is currently grass that this single female with health issues no longer wants to have to cut every 10 days or pay somebody else to do it. Thanx again.
