Answer: There are a number of low-maintenance groundcovers for you to try. Among the favorites are Pachysandra, Vinca minor, Ajuga, and English ivy. All prefer full sun but will adapt to partially shady sites.
To get the most from your new plants, plan to spend some time amending the soil with organic matter so their roots can become well established. Once the parent plants are established, they will spread out to cover the bare spots in your landscape.
Best wishes with your landscape!
