I'd like to start a good ground cover at the bottom and let it spread, eventually, over the whole yard. (Also, eventually, I'd like to add more shrubs, plants, flower beds, a bit of terracing, a walkway.....but I need to take it slow.) The soil is not very good, has a lot of clay and rocks. What would be a good ground cover to plant? I've been told creeping phlox and ivy might work. Also, I was thinking of hiring someone to come in with a roto-tiller to prepare the ground for planting.....any advice is welcome!
