i am in the New Orleans area, in a suburban setting and am turning my backyard into a food-forest.
i am growing a lot of fruittrees, as well as herbs etc...
My biggest problem is grass.
I have used cardboard and newspaper, which works, but, its a lot of work, and breaks down eventually.
i need some suggestions for plants that will outcompete the grass...
OR? other suggestions ?
i need it for shade areas, and also full sun
Here is a quick list of what i am growing...
loquat, blackberry, passionflower, basil, starfruit, jujube, banana, guava, papaya, mango, several citrus.

Sweet potato makes a dense groundcover that will even outcompete Bermuda grass and will be a perennial plant in your climate.
