Original Message Susan hope this helps
Quoting Susan: ------------
-I moved to SC a year and a half ago,
-have since purchased a small home. I
-have had
increasing problems with allergies
-and upper respiratory problems, and
-recently found out I am
highly allergic to every type of
-grass for which my allergist tested.
-backyard is small - about 165
feet square. I currently have a
-chain link fence that I cannot afford
-replace, and would like to grow
something to cover it. Also, since
-grass is part of my problem, I would
-like to develop a plan for the
yard that does not include grass.
-Except for a few trees around the
-perimeter, the space is barren -
-mostly sand. I have some ideas for
-of the space, such as a small
-under a tree stand, but do not know
-I can use as ground cover that is not
-grass. I also have a large dog that
-likes to run, so I need something
-durable. Any suggestions are welcome.
