Did you know that there is a ground cover option to meet most homeowners needs? Whether you’re planting a pathway, a hedge, or a broad swath of green, ground covers run the gamut of foliage textures and colors.  Ground covers can work great as barriers or landscape punctuation.

When deciding on which type of ground coverage plants to incorporate into your yard, try and look for attributes that meet your needs. Is it child-durable, deer-resistant, drought-tolerant, shade-loving?

Mixing various ground coverings up is not only aesthetically pleasing, it’s also good for the landscape – as diversity increases resistance to pests and disease and reduces the need for fertilizer and pesticides.

Here are some popular choices that we offer at Arbor Hills:

  • Blue Rug Junipers
  • Pachysandra
  • Plumbago
  • Rubeckia
