    Hi Donna! There are some beautiful ground covers like phlox. Creeping phlox is colorful and low maintenance.

    Creeping thyme, or other forms of thyme for your zone bloom all summer, are perennial, and will spread. Check to see which ones may grow in reduced sun areas, if that is your case. You could install pavers, or a gravel path in that area, if you preferred.
