Yes, kids, landscaping. But not my yard. Nor even Earth.
I need to ask my online Master Mind (that would be you) to help me come up with an alternate term for ground cover.
Specifically, is there another term for it?
See, I’m rewriting The Dinosaur Lords, and while there’s grass on Paraiso, there’s also a lot of other ground covers, like ferns and other low-growing, sprawly plants.
And I’ve finally hit the saturation point on writing “ground cover” all the freaking time. It doesn’t sound that … well, organic.
“Low vegetation” might serve. Occasionally. But it doesn’t seem quite right for me as a general-purpose term.
Suggestions do not need to be accepted landscaping or botanical ones. “Short and sufficiently descriptive” will, well, suffice.
So – ideas? Please?
In other news – WordPress, what did you do with the ability to add a snarky comment visible by mouseover, á la xkcd? I miss that. For I am a smartass.
