    Dismiss Notice

Looking for groundcover

Discussion in 'Lawn Mowing' started by Davis TLC, Aug 29, 2000.

  1. Jeffyr,

    I agree on the weedblock, I don't use it at all unless the customer is just deadset on getting it.

    This site is along a county road, so the hard fescue maybe the best bet. Need something that will not need alot of care and still looks decent. Too many deadbeats would drive by and steal the blue rug junipers. Has a fescue cover on it now, just weedy. Customer may have to spray to control the weeds, even though she may not like too.
    One end of this bank is steep and the other end flattens out into a swamp.

    Thanks for the help guys.

    I am strongly hatefull of that trash called weedblock as
    it does not work as jeffry states.Hate putting it down
    as it always windy when doing it and it doesn't seem to
    stop the weeds as they just grow on top.If you get one of
    those customers who are dead set on it buy the thickest
    one you can, better to work with.

    Blue rug is a very good choise but you can use "procumbus"
    and do the same with one diff. the procumbus can be trimmed to look like a small hedge a great effect on a slope if you want to be diff.
