Q.Please suggest a groundcover to replace two lawn areas about 12’x12′ in front of my home.
Ground cover should be low maintenance and use little water. I have two lawn areas in front of my home which are about 10’x12′. The lawn is gone now due to the drought. I would like to remove the lawn and plant a ground cover which will not use a lot of water. Can you tell me what type of ground cover is low maintenance and uses very little water. I live in San Carlos CA. zip: 94070 25 south of S.F. Thank you for your help. Phil Gaal
