Ground Covers

Drought conditions and water rationing have left lawns throughout the metro area dotted with bare spots. These patches are not only weed magnets, but if large enough, they can cause soil erosion. Rather than just replacing these spots with more turf, ground covers require less maintenance than turf because you don't have to mow them. The ideal ground cover plant forms a dense mat of roots and foliage to reduce soil erosion, exclude weeds and provide an attractive, year-round appearance. And as a ground cover, they spread to create a functional and attractive way to manage bare spots.
