      Can anyone help Bill with this?

The soil is sandy and dusty and full of pine needles, and the sunlight is filtered. I’m looking for the best ground cover to create a thick grass-like carpet that my family can recreate on. This is a vacation home and we are rarely there so we can’t water, mow or maintain it. Does such a plant exist? Much thanks.

      A horticulturalist friend was telling me about Buffalo grass. A hardy, drought tollerant, western native grass that is used in xerioscape gardening. Maybe
