Suggest a plant for groundcover under a porch
Posted by Micah from NC on 2009-04-05 09:46:00

So I have a raised wooden porch and isntead of putting lattice or something around the porch, I just want to plant something that will act as ground cover.

Im looking for any ideas.

I was thinking of some type of moss but I have no idea what kind of "conditions" moss grows in. This is really the first time in my married life Ive tried to do any gardening.

If possible, I want something that doesnt attract bees/wasps/hornets.

Id like it to be pretty if possible :)

Needs to be cheap.

Needs to live year round.

Id like to be able to get it as seeds.

Any suggestions welcome

    Need more specific info in order to be helpful such as, height of porch off the ground, amount of light hitting the general area, type of soil, etc.
