We have pine trees on one side of our lot. It creates a lot of shade. What is a good ground cover in place of trying to grow grass?

If its not too much shade a creeping juniper might work. They have some really pretty bi-color ones. If its heavy shade you might try hosta,lilly-of-the-valley or impatiens. Depending on the roots of the tree azalias would probably work also.

Have you thought about Bronze leaf ginger? It's a ground cover for shade and looks very pretty. Just a thought!
