Between my yard and the house behind, there is a 10 foot area the had out of control honeysuckle. We had the honeysuckle taken down by our builder and still spray roundup on shoots that emerge periodically. This is an area covered with mulch for the last 1.5 years. I am considering a ground cover for this area rather than have to mulch it again. There is lawn on either side (on the far side my neighbours lawn and mine on the other side) and this area is at the top of a slope. The area gets sun in the morning till 1.00 pm and then is in the shade mostly.
Lo-gro sumac was suggested for this area. Is this invasive and will it eventually invade the lawn on either side. How can the spread onto the lawn be controlled? Will it prevent erosion too? Any alternative suggestions are welcome.
