So Clover is hard to pull from the ground? Even if just to plant some seed for a tree once?

Grass is getting a lot taller than the groundcover I mentioned, and need chopping,  right?

I don't want something to takeoff completely,  just something I can pull with the roots quite easily when I plant fruit trees.

I've heard that:
Lychee, oranges and Pomelo like a bit of cold.
And, that Akee likes a bit of dryness.

I want to start a fruit forest in the wet tropics of Ecuador or in that area. With night Avg. Temp of min. 22 celsius (70 F)

Can I grow those fruit trees and enjoy their fruits?
I love those fruits. Would appreciate answers

I heard Mango likes semi dry climate, yet I've seen Mangoes also in the wet tropics.

What varieties do well in the wet tropics like in Ecuador?

I'm doing a research and planning for my future fruit forest.
I'm looking for ground covers.
So far I've found: Sweet potatoes, clover, Peanut and lucerne.

Properties I'm looking for:
Short as possible.
Soft and pleasant to lie down on (naked)
Nutritious to the soil.
Can be taken out easily when wanting to plant something else.
Doesn't need much caring.

I think that's about it. Hope didn't forget anything.
