Nancy Turner on Jun 06, 2017The ivy looking ground cover sounds like what I call creeping Charlie in my yard and gardens. They spread by root from a mother plant. They are a weed and very invasive. I dig them up and follow the root to the next plant until I reach about six inches outside the garden. This way when the start back into the garden it will be from the edge and easy to deal with. I have a very shady lot and grass doesn't do well, so right now the weed is green and makes my yard look better than if I killed it off. Our dogs also take care of a lot of the grass in the back yard with their big paws running around so right now something green is a blessing until we can paver what we can.Helpful Reply
KD Redlowske on Jun 06, 2017Actually I've never heard that Creeping Charlie was a weed. We used them as hanging house plants and would trim if needed. If well taken care of they will bloom. Just go on the Internet and look the name up, it will give you a lot of good information.Helpful Reply
