What would be the hardiest groundcovers to use next to a sal****er

groundcover to stop the weeds.


How far from the pool? Will it experience the patter of little feet? What
is the soil like? What have you tried there?

There are things that will grow in salty soil but they are not likely to
take foot traffic and they are not that dense that they will exclude
everything else. Maybe somebody else can name a miracle plant that will do
the job but I would be thinking of astroturf or pavers.
