I'm considering planting ( spreading of seed anyway!) of some type of grass that doesn't need to be mowed.....( short stuff?) I need to cover some open areas that are prone to become muddy beyond my wildest nightmares whenever it rains... It's for my land up north at 5,200 elevation. I have not had a lawn, nor had to mow one, for longer than I care to remember! I just need an idea of what would work basically as a ground cover, to absorb some of the rain, and keep the place from being a complete disaster. Not many birds anywhere in the area...maybe a couple blackbirds seen in 10 days time....Nothing to eat up all the seeds! Thanks!
