I have the cliche "cabin up north in the woods". Not actually woods--but there's so many trees that not much light penetrates to the ground. My neighbors & I only have a tuft of grass here & there. No need to keep a mower up there Currently my ground cover is dry leaves. If I pick up the leaves then my entire yard is sandy with those sparse tufts of grass. Lots of dirt gets tracked into the house--so I leave the leaves where they lay. There are a couple 'full-timers' in my neighborhood who have a proper lawn but they trucked in topsoil & they water often--not an option for someone who only spends 2 days there now & then. So my question is...Do I have any options under these circumstances? Looking for ideas. The geography in question is northern Michigan.
