Ground covers are low growing, often spreading plants that offer ground coverage in areas that are difficult to mow like slopes and hillsides. They can be a substitute for grass or used as borders around gardens and plant beds and along walkways. Ground covers help prevent erosion and suppress weed growth. There are a lot of options when it comes to these low maintenance plants. From evergreen to flowering to grasses and perennials you can certainly find the right plant for what you need.
