Top 5 Ground Cover Plants


Paths and walkways are an integral part of every garden. They allow you to get from one place to another easily in order to maintain the garden. But paths and walkways don’t need to be only practical, they can easily become decorative and beautiful. This can be done by planting interesting plants and ground covers which will add colour and life to them and to your garden as well.

Ground covers are also a perfect solution for stopping weeds. Bare soil is not only a magnet for weeds, but it can also dry out very quickly creating drought issues for plants. Covering the soil with a ground cover. will help to insulate soil when temperatures get very hot or cold and will add colour to the garden with their attractive leaves and flowers.
