Ground Cover Design Tips
A lawn doesn’t necessarily mean a wide expanse of grass. Only a few grasses grow well in any given area. By contrast, there are many ground covers that can offer a fine alternative. These plants hug the ground, almost as short as a lawn. They readily spread over large areas and are especially effective when planted en masse. Many offer seasonal color.
Forever & Ever Ground Cover has the perfect plants to turn your lawn into a centerpiece.
- Think conservation. Determine how much of your landscape a single sprinkler (or zone) can effectively water. Plant this area with the traditional lawngrass of your choice. Get creative on the outskirts using Forever & Ever Ground Covers.
- Think low maintenance. For planting in mass, choose ground covers that use less water and need less mowing. That will give you more time to enjoy your yard without working in it.
- Think special situations. Need to keep animals out? Choose ground covers with dense or prickly stems. Light traffic? Think a little taller and plant blooming ground covers.
