My pool is currently under construction but will someday need something planted beyond the concrete pool deck. The pool is on a hill so they dug out one side and built up the other, and it's the down hill side of the pool that I'll need to take care of.
I'd like something that is fairly tough (will be able to handle being walked on a little and also able to handle pool water (SWG) splashing on it). Erosion controll is a plus since it's on a hill. And I'd also like something low (or no) maintenance.
Good old grass seems like a quick and easy option but I don't want to have to worry about mowing/weed wacking.....too much time required, too much mess created.
So, what are some of the best groundcovers to border the pool deck?
Here's a link to some photos of the pool:
