Easy-to-grow groundcovers are essential to any healthy lawn or garden. They're great helpers if you want to ensure soil quality or add a pretty pop of life to your rather dull landscape. 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 groundcovers - Vinca Minor

Vinca Minor, also known as Periwinkle, is a trendy 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 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 excellent in 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 famous plants, which 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 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 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. 

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