Ground Cover Plants
Ground Cover Plants have multiple purposes some of which are: protecting the ground from erosion, covering the ground in shade areas where nothing else will grow, as an alternative to grass for lawns, provide oxygen, or to simply hide an area of bare ground. Technically, grass is considered a groundcover; however in gardening, groundcover refers to plants that are non-grass and used instead of grass. There are four general types of plants that are most commonly used as groundcovers: vines, herbaceous plants such as annuals/perennials, shrubs, and moss.
