Idiomatic & Metaphorical Verb-Phrase

.

.

When referring to having a:  Conversation, Meeting, or Discussion of any sort — this phrase is used to express that the discussion covered many different subjects — and it implies that a lot was accomplished by doing-so.
.

“I think that it was a very productive meeting.  We certainly covered a lot of ground, and I think that we all have a much better understanding of how best to move forward.”

.

Remember! — this is the idiomatic and metaphorical use of this verb-phrase.  If a person uses this phrase when referring something like:  Landscaping, Excavation, Agriculture, or possibly doing a Search — then it would be the literal usage of the phrase — meaning that they actually “covered” (or went over) a large area of the “ground” (the land, the Earth).
