Easy to grow groundcovers are essential to any healthy lawn or garden. Whether you want to ensure soil quality or add a pretty pop of life to your rather dull landscape, they're great helpers.  But there are so many beautiful plants to choose from; how do you decide? We chose our top 3 favorite groundcovers to save you a little extra Time! 

Easy to grow groundcover - Vinca Minor

Vinca Minor, also known as Periwinkle, is an incredibly popular plant. This gorgeous plant has star-shaped, periwinkle flowers. Though it packs a big punch, it only grows to a height of about 1/4 inch to 1/2 inch. Each planting will cover between 1/2 foot and 1 1/2 feet, making it a perfect flower for a stunning garden. It's also great for just about any type of soil, sun, and shade! This means that it is excellent to grow just about anywhere. 

The leaves are evergreen, and the 1'', adorable flowers last from spring until the beginning of fall! 

English Ivy - a Perfect Groundcover

English Ivy is another popular evergreen . As it loves to climb, it can reach heights between 20 and 80 feet! It can also spread anywhere between 3 and 50 feet! These beautiful leaves are evergreen and are great with all conditions - including heavy shade and drought! Landscapers and DIY gardeners love this ivy because it is incredibly fast-growing. They spread quickly and grow anywhere between 6 and 9 inches tall (if not climbing).  

This evergreen adds surprising pops of color in early fall with green-white flowers and a darker pop closer to winter when the flowers produce blue-black berries. Also known as Allegheny Spurge, Pachysandra procumbens is a lovely groundcover with delightful, delicate color. It is lighter than other popular plants, meaning that it can easily accentuate any garden. It typically grows to about 1/2 to 1 foot tall and can spread up to 1 to 2 feet. 

While this evergreen is usually a bit of a wallflower, it really stands out when it blooms in spring. It has lovely, starburst white flowers with just a hint of pinky lilac at the tips. And these flowers pack a punch that goes beyond beauty - they also have a lovely scent that can be smelled easily. This plant is the only evergreen in some areas, but it is typically lovely year-round regardless. 

Now that you know a bit more about our top picks for groundcovers, hopefully, your next garden project will be easier and turn out lovelier!
