HOLY COW that looks AWESOME! Great job!
Not sure on the ground cover. A while back I read an article on growing moss.
I think you blend up a big chunk with some buttermilk and water, put in a squirt bottle, spray and viola! Fluffy moss on rocks etc.
Have yet to try it...
Creeping Phlox is pretty tough, I can send you some of that! I had some growing in an area that the dogs liked to wrestle, lasted for quite a while, **** dogs finally tromped it out there...
Violets I have too, can't kill those if you tried. There is also a tiny bulb, guys help with the name, its got a lovely bunch of star shaped white flowers in the spring. Makes a great ground cover for not too heavily trafficked areas.
Can you do hens and chicks up there?
How about wild strawberries? They grow like crazy here, tiny, not too upright, and yummy (if I can get to them before the turkeys do...)
Thanks for the info on the vetch Celeste!
You can get a lot further with a ladder than you can with crutches!! What do you mean what do I mean?
