Excelent article. My quest is of another kind. I am interested in using ground covers to substitute/eliminate turf. Unfortunately in Puerto Rico propagators and nurseries are really pathetic, there are no options so I observe and try to improvise from nature. I think that
gardens are much more attractive without so much sterile turf. They do not do anything for birds or insects, and create noise and pollution. Congratulations, the information and advice provided is useful and original.

Thank you. I could not agree more. I would love to eliminate my turf grass but still have young kids who like to play on it. Eventually I will change over. Your screen name pretty much says what you feel!
