Hi. I need some advice on selecting a ground cover. I have a couple of areas around my PV Solar panels that I would like to place some ground cover. It should assist in erosion control, be low to the ground, low maintenance, and drive-out weeds and grass. It is an area that is difficult to mow and weed-eating is discouraged. It is also located in mildly moist area with partial to full sun. The climate is a zone 5. Any advice you could provide from what type and how to plant would be much welcomed and greatly appreciated. Thank you! Joe.
