Ground Covers Grab Bags Contain a Variety of Luscious, Green Plants that Grow Low to the Ground
Ground Covers are an invaluable part of a garden. There are many different types of ground covers, but they all serve a few essential functions. First and foremost is weed control. Ground Cover Grab Bag tends to be dense, low-growing plants, which means they spread out and deny weeds space and water they need to thrive. Using ground cover as weed control is very useful, but it takes a few seasons before the ground cover will be dense enough to control weeds by themselves. For the first 1-3 seasons, regular weeding will be necessary.
Ground Cover Bags are a Cost Effective way to Work on Erosion Control in your Landscaping Designs and Projects
The other use of ground covers is erosion control. Especially on slopes and hills, the dense root systems of ground cover plants can help keep the soil from eroding. The roots of ground cover also help hold water in the soil where it is needed, rather than washing away downhill or evaporating back into the air.
Earthworms, essential for the health of the soil, are protected from birds by the dense ground cover. Other insects, such as ladybugs and other beetles, lacewings, hover flies, and even parasitic wasps will take up residence in ground cover plants and immediately start eating destructive creatures like aphids, caterpillars, and slugs. Flowering ground covers will attract butterflies and bees, which will help pollinate other plants.
The fourth benefit of ground cover plants is the fact that they are a low-cost and low-maintenance way to keep difficult areas green. Dry, patchy spots may not be great for grass, but many ground covers thrive in full sun and low moisture. Instead of weeds sprouting between paving stones, ground cover plants can be used for a much more delicate look. All in all, ground cover plants are an extremely beneficial part of almost any garden or yard.
Ground covers are luscious green plants that grow low to the ground and readily spread out. They don’t require watering, feeding, or mowing.
Ground covers come in several variations. One or more of them will:
• Prevent topsoil from eroding.
• Cover sloping areas that are too difficult to mow. You may want to plant perennial creeping plants or Blue Rug Juniper on slopes.
• Cover shady areas where grass does not grow well. Many spreading, shade-loving plants would work well in those ever-shady places.
• Te cover ground in luscious greenery such as sedum (stonecrop) or ice plant in hot and dry areas.
• Tolerate heavy foot traffic better than grass does. You’ll need one of the sturdy creeping varieties. Plant something like creeping thyme or baby’s tears in heavy-traffic areas.
• Choke out weeds. Densely-growing ground covers such as dragon’s blood and creeping phlox won’t give pots a chance to grow where these plants live.
• Smell delicious. One of the creeping mint species or creeping thyme would delight the senses as you pass by them.
• Attract bees and other pollinators. If you have flowering plants that need pollen transferred, you want bees. Bees help plants to grow, reproduce themselves and bring forth food.
