Hi there! I'm so excited that there's a "groundcover" forum!! Who knew?? My husband and I just came into possession of 1.31 acres on Salt Spring Island. The land has good sun exposure, but of course we are on the "Wet Coast". Right now it looks to have some kind of tall grass on it (hard to tell in winter), but we are going to have the land cleared of the broom that's invaded it, ploughed, and seeded. I would like to make a good choice of cover. If AT ALL POSSIBLE, we would prefer not to mow much if at all. We don't have forage animals, but our neighbours do, so perhaps a mix of low-growing forage crops (kentucky bluegrass? perennial rye? alfalfa? timothy?). We would rather be enriching the soil than depleting it (so clover? vetch?). We've also heard there is some controversy around tall fescue as being invasive and perhaps causing laminitis in mares, but I don't know much about that. We'll be walking the land but there won't be high traffic. Thank you so much! Look forward to your suggestions!
