I have scalped a yard that has not been maintained for over two years. I used a hula hoe to remove the weeds and dead grass at the rools as much as possible. The only living thing in the yard was an ice plant that was in a planter which no longer exists but the ice plant has been dug out carefully feeling that if it has survived with no maintenece or water and still was green and has just finished blooming then this may be the best ground cover for a yard where the tenant wants to spend a minimum  of money and time for the front yard. She has cats and her bakyard is her passion. can a large Ice plant be transplanted and cut up in  Pieces "sprigs" that will survive to eventually grow together for ground cover. The ice plant has many white tenticals running along the bottom of most of the runners from the center. I have seen Ivy vines cut and put into water where they will grow the same looking white roots and then are planted. Is ice plant similar and since the white tenticals already exist, can I plant imediately. How deep. How far apart. How to care for so that they take. soil prep? please help. Ice plant is waiting and ready, so am I.

Thanks
