Lawn grass is the dominant ground cover plant in American yards, but there are areas where it just isn’t practical. Shady areas, steep slopes, and small spaces just aren’t appropriate for a lawn. These ground cover plants offer an alternative way to cover large areas of the garden with living plants that bring beauty and function to those tricky spots where the grass just won’t grow. Groundcovers can be used for their aesthetic function too. Many of these choices offer color and texture that help to create visual interest in your garden design.
