I have an ugly culvert in the front of my house. its a back-breaker to have to cut the grass in it by dipping the mower down into the culver then having to pull it back out. i was thinking of killing the grass in the bottom half of the culvert, and planting groudcover that can grown as wild as it wants. what are your thoughts?

I think your idea is a good one! Here are a few groundcover plants to consider: Ajuga
(Ajuga reptans), grows 3? high. It blooms in spring. Liriope (Liriope muscari) grows
1-2? in height, has violet, white or pink flowers that extend above the foliage in the summer. Mondo Grass (Ophiopogon japonicus) grows 6-12? in height. Hope these suggestions are helpful.
