I live in Kansas City. Our house has a sloped back yard toward the house. We have very rocky soil and lots of shade. We would like suggestions on what we can plant along the fence in the picture. Grass has not grown well in this area due to our soil/sun issues. I did a little research and it seems there are some plants that will take over the back yard and won't get very tall. I would really like something like that. I did read a vinca or liriope might work. We do want to walk on it, so I was looking at a ground cover that doesn't get very high and would help with water drainage on the slope. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for your time.
