Ground Cover - Knowledgebase Question

Currituck, NC
Question by snyderchalet

I want to lay down ground cover in our backyard in place of the sparse grass that grows there now. It is sandy, coastal soil almost entirely shaded by a number of loblolly pines. The summers can be dry but the backyard floods in spots during heavy rains. What is the best ground cover for these conditions, approximate cost, and how to go about planting?
Thank you for this service

I think the biggest consideration would be to try and improve the soil a bit and adding organic material as mentioned above. This way you get rid of the sparse grass that is there now, have loose soil to work in, and have a good opportunity to add in the soil improvements. If you need a source for anything please feel free to post another question via the website.
