Apply such organic or inert
ground covers four to six inches
deep.
Many gardeners turn to low-
growing plants to solve the pro-
blem of what to grow under large
shade trees. Grass doesn't do well
in such spots but a bed of
pachysandra just might thrive.
Consult your local nurseryman
to see what plants work as ground
covers in your area. There are
larger and smaller types. Some
prefer shade, some the sun; others
will do well in either.
Establishing a good ground

and filled with a mixture of 50 per-
cent peat moss and 50 percent
sand. A 10-6-4 fertilizer should be
added to the mixture. Plant at
recommended spacings, which
for these would be 12 to 18 inches

Water every day for the first nine
days, then about once a week

ground.
Remove weeds until the cover
has a chance to become estab-
lished, which will take about a year.
Ground covers can be started at
almost any time of the growing
season.
To keep ground covers from
spreading into undesirable areas
like the lawn, many landscapers
install barriers around the beds.
