Re: Ground cover


I think you have the right idea for this path Judy.... rock paths can be
attractive if designed properly. I am thinking that even the toughest of
plants needs to get established and I doubt the dog is going to give it
a season to do that.

   
  Of course, I assume, teaching the dog not to run there is probably not a possibility...
   
  So what kind of dog do you have Jim?

  Hope it works out. I visited a small nursery in Seattle that used 3/8- 
washed gravel for paths. It packed down nicely & didn't track all over like 
sand or bark mulch or bare dirt.
