non-lawn domestic yard options

Asked April 21, 2016, 8:22 PM EDT

I have recently moved to Lawrenceburg (within city limits) and purchased a home with approximately .25 acres of plantable land. I don't particularly care for grass as a large scale ground cover. Are there any options? Is it possible to replace the grass without pulling up the sod? I am also interested in planting several dwarf fruit trees in the back section of my yard. Which are the most suited to the local environment, and when should they be planted? Is it possible to plant clover around the trees to provide nitrogen? Also, I am new to Kentucky in general. Are there invasive species that I should be aware of?
