Groundcovers are a great solution to those patchy parts of your landscape. The term, ‘Ground Cover’ best describes perennials that are known for their ability to spread. Not only do they enhance the areas of your lawn where grass is difficult to sustain, but they often require less water than grass and are a great way to prevent erosion in hilly areas.

Choose the right groundcover to grow between your garden pavers or in around a rock wall. If it’s something for a full sun exposure, shade, native plants or something in the way of ornamental grasses, we can help you find it here!

Once established, ground covers are generally low-maintenance.
