evergreen lawn substitute ground covers
Thanks for writing. You didn't say if you have sun or shade so I don't know if any of these will work for you, but in general, some choices include:
Creeping grapeholly (Mahonia)
Creeping junipers (Juniperus)
Irish moss (Sagina)
Look for these and other good choices at your local garden center or nursery.
