Ground cover in Vancouver, WA area

Zone 98684 | Anonymous added on February 18, 2017 | Answered

We were thinking that Blue Rug Juniper may be good but it tends to grow out of a given area to another. What would you suggest? We need to cover a front area to keep out weeds and to comply with community rules of neatness. Area is about 20' by 12' next to sidewalk and edges the street.

Creeping Junipers can spread, but can be easily controlled by pruning or plant removal.

Varieties 'Bar Harbor' and 'Green Sargent' may be good choices.
