Ground Covers and Lawn Substitutes


Ground covers are plants that can serve you in many ways on difficult sites where other plants fail to grow. Some are adapted to steep slopes, dense shade, dryness, poor drainage, salty or acid soils, wind exposure and odd shaped areas. For about every site problem, there is an adapted ground cover that will thrive, cover and protect the problem site, and add variety and harmony to the entire landscape. They may be used to cover bare areas, to prevent wind or water erosion of the soil, to regulate foot traffic and to tie together unrelated features in the landscape.
