Groundcovers

Pink Chintz Thyme Alternative Lawn

Groundcovers

Our perennial groundcovers are an indispensable part of any well designed garden providing colorful flowers and attractive foliage. These low growing ground cover plants are great for using as an alternative lawn (especially in shaded areas), filling spaces between flagstone or pavers, or for creating a “living mulch” that cools the ground and suppresses weed growth.
