Q.What Plants Can I Use To Cover Old Brick Planters On A Steep Hillside?
Hi, we bought a house last year and have rows upon rows of planters in our backyard. Our first spring we attempted planting flowers but we cannot maintain the work and maintenance of removing the weeds between and within the planters. Are there any plants or ground covering flowers that would work will in these planters for suffocating the weeds? We are not gardeners by any means so are looking for something low maintenance. Our neighbors have used ivy which is something we have considered but we are also interested in other options. Thank you for your help.
