I'm designing a long term plan for a 70 foot long herb/flower/edibles
border within my garden fence on the west side garden fence. I want
something low, like a groundcover that will grow on a well drained but
highly fertile soil where there is a slight bank. The border would be
about 3 to 6 feet wide, depending on where you were standing, and the
inside, the high side, is about 8-12 inches higher than the low side. I
envision a few rocks in the border, but wouldn't call it a rock garden.
I just like the idea of groundcovers, and since I'm a bit far south for
cranberries, I thought that being lower to the ground might help with
keeping it alive in the summer.
