Ground Covers & Grasses

FLOWERING GROUNDCOVER | FOLIAGE GROUNDCOVER | GRASSY GROUNDCOVER | STRAPPY PLANTS | EROSION CONTROL

Ground cover plants grow outwards not upwards, making them perfect for covering large areas, suppressing weeds, or creating a dramatic mass planting effect. Some will grow to around knee- or hip--high, others will lie low and hug the ground. They're valuable for banks and slopes where they help retain soil and rainfall.
