Tips Index


Ground covers are commonly thought of as substitutes for grass. This is true in shady areas, moist areas, banks and slopes, but they also can be used in other exciting ways. Ground covers can be used as border plantings to highlight landscape areas. They can emphasize existing plant material. They can be used to contrast color and foliage texture of other plants. Ground covers are so widely used because they are extremely hardy and require little maintenance and are adaptable to most soil conditions.
