Pink Chintz Thyme Lawn - Albuquerque, NM

Alternative Lawns | Groundcovers

Create an alternative lawn by carpeting your landscape with colorful, low-care groundcovers. These low-growing perennials are an indispensable part of any well-well designed garden and are perfect for replacing areas of lawn, large and small, especially difficult-to-mow hillsides. Use them as a “living mulch” to cool the ground and suppress weed growth or for filling in spaces between flagstones and pavers. Knowing and understanding their tolerance to foot traffic is a key element in deciding what are the right groundcovers for your needs.
