These low lying plants are perfect ground coverage for hard to grow and imperfect areas, they are less expensive than mulch & gravel which are high maintenance. Don't forget to water during dry periods.
Ground covers are often used in all styles of home landscaping. The natural look blends in with the environment and it adds a lush look to landscape design.
Ground covers provide coverage where grass won’t grow, along edges of driveways and sidewalks, near benches & fences, areas too narrow for growing shrubs, under trees and in rock gardens. Ground covers planted around tree trunks can help prevent mower damage and 'weedeater disease'.
Remember some ground covers spread rapidly and will have to be maintained to prevent spreading into unwanted areas.
