Perennial groundcovers can make life in the garden easier. Groundcovers offer a beautiful, organic method for handling many common garden problems. Understanding and properly applying groundcovers can significantly improve your overall landscape design.
Advantages of Groundcovers
- Most popular groundcover plants spread vigorously — they can be used to bare spots in your yard, even hillsides and dry spots under trees.
- Deep-rooted ground covers can help you contain an erosion proble, holding the earth solidly in place. Short-rooted groundcovers break up the ground, allowing trees and shrubs to receive moisture and nutrients more easily.
- Ground covers regulate soil moisture and temperature, reducing the need for mulch. They also crowd out and smother weeds.
- Short, tread-able ground covers can be used as a low-maintenance, interesting alternative to traditional lawn grass.
