Q.Looking for Dwarf Bushes and Ground Cover
I’m 67 and need to take out the bushes around two sides of my small ranch home. I want to replace them with something slow growing that won’t take much maintenance. I need several dwarf, green pointed-type bushes and a very low green ground cover. As you can see, I don’t know much about plants. I need plants that will do okay in sun in the summer and snow (in Michigan) in the winter. I also have lots of rabbits, woodchucks, and other critters that like to eat things like burning bushes, etc.

The pointed bushes would be cedar or arborvitae, maybe a dwarf norway spruce. For a flat bush, a trailing juniper might be of interest to you.
