Plantings between woods or grassy field and lawn
What plantings will prevent or minimize weeds and wild plants from encroaching onto the lawn? Criteria: low maintenance, looks nice, perennial, won't spread or spreads slowly, dense cover New development of town homes is surrounded by woods (conservation easement) behind the east side of buildings. Most woods are in shade for half of the day. some lawn areas are in sun and border on a field newly created during development and now covered with grasses and wild plants. Soil varies from sand to heavy clay. Lawn is irrigated. The lawn edge goes up to woods and field. In one area there is a 3 foot wide strip left without sod. It now is filled with weeds and wild plants. Is it necessary to pull out the roots of these plants before we plant others? I will send pics in another submission.
