Ground Covers: “Living Mulch”
Ground covers can replace grass in many situations, reducing the need for weeding and watering while adding beauty and interest to the landscape. These mat-forming plants conserve moisture, build soil microbe populations, prevent soil erosion, and provide nectar for pollinators.
Ground covers are useful under large trees where grass is sparse or where roots protrude from the ground, and are also helpful in shaded, sloping, or dry areas. Low-growers can be planted near walkways or the front of a house, while taller varieties can be used near boundary lines or to screen unwanted views.
