Green low profile groundcover.
Just built a new home South of Monmouth on our farm. Front yard is too steep to mow with a riding mower so I terraced it. Flat parts will be grass. I want to plant the steep slopes with some kind of green vegetation I don't have to mow that will also serve as a fire break. Lot's of clay in soil as homesite is at the foot of a hill. Don't want to water much either as it's a big area. Slopes face North and Northwest. There is a patch of Ivy like stuff just across the road from my house. I think my brother in law said it was Vinka???? Apparently there was a house there decades ago and that stuff is still around. Seems to stay green. Suggestions?
