Containing Ajuga

Anonymous added on August 15, 2017 | Answered

I am considering planting either silver beauty or burgundy glow around two trees that are surrounded by stone(see photo attached) Should I be concerned about the ajuga "creeping" onto the lawn?

These articles have some ideas but most of them will require regular upkeep:
