Suggestion for non invasive plants


I have removed some ivy from my backyard and want to plant some non invasive plants there. The area gets sun from about 10am until at least 6pm. I think a hardy ground cover might be good….. something that doesn’t need care! II can’t send a picture as it’s too big and I don’t know how to make it smaller


It is great that you are planning to replace your ivy with a native, non-invasive plant species.

There is a very good guide to alternatives to invasive plants published by the Ontario Invasive Plant Council, which is a great starting point.  It contains examples of ground covers for a range of shade and sun conditions:

Best of luck with this project!
