Groundcovers for Smarter Landscapes

daisyPerennial 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.Groundcover
  • 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.

  • The most important element of your garden remains the flower and it is the selection of garden flowers and their perfect arrangement in the garden that gives it a great look. The color and fragrance of the flowers chosen should be in sync with your taste and flavor. Since most of the flowers bloom only in a particular season, you should have a mix of them in your gardening area so that it looks fresh in every season.
