Groundcovers are a great group of garden plants. They create the foundation of an inspiring garden. Consider a nice wood floor or a beautiful area rug that ties a room together in a home and makes all the furniture look even better. Groundcovers create a flowering and foliar carpet for the garden, making all the taller grasses, perennials, and shrubs planted into them look more beautiful. Groundcovers also act as a living mulch, helping to shade the soil and keep plant roots cooler, and helping to reduce weeds when healthy and dense.
Spread your wings and try some of these recommendations for groundcovers - including popular varieties as well as some great groundcovers that may be new to you. The results will delight!
