About Ground Covers

Ground covers, such as Red Creeping Thyme play a major role in both the sun and shade garden. Most ground covers are referred to as Living Mulches because they are low growing, provide dense soil cover, and help keep the weeds at bay. In addition, ground covers are very useful in preventing erosion. Perennial ground covers provide an economic benefit as well since they do not need to be replaced every year like mulch. Ground covers help unify the landscape, and in many cases are very colorful. Leptinella is good for hard to grow areas in the sun garden because they do not require much water, yet fill in very quickly.
