Best Groundcovers to Use In Gardens

Groundcovers are a great way to transform an area into something more interesting rather than leaving it as space. Many different types are available, but which is best for your garden? We’ve covered some of the more popular options below.

Sedum

Sedum is another tough ground cover that can handle sun or shade and poor soil conditions. It proliferates and spreads by rhizomes (underground stems) to form clumps up to 3 feet wide. Wide varieties of sedums are available for different uses, including those with yellow flowers, blue flowers, and variegated leaves (splashed with other colors besides green). Finding a variety that will work well in your garden is easy.

Blue Star Creeper

Blue Star Creeper is a beautiful groundcover used as a border, edging, or moss lawn. It has blue-green leaves and white flowers that bloom early in the spring. Blue Star Creeper will grow to about 12 inches tall and spread to 12 inches wide. This plant does best in partial shade but will tolerate full sun once established.

Alpine strawberry

This plant is low maintenance, tolerates sun or shade, and does well in poor soil conditions. It's also an excellent ground cover for shady areas because it spreads quickly to fill bare spots. Alpine strawberries produce white flowers in spring that turn into small red berries that can be eaten or used to make wine.

Irish moss

Irish moss is a perennial ground cover that grows well in shade or sun. It is drought-tolerant and low maintenance, making it a good choice for gardens with little time or money to spare. Irish moss thrives in moist soil conditions and will tolerate wet feet. It spreads quickly by runners and self-seeding, so if you want to keep your patch under control, you'll need to divide it regularly or mow the lawn over it every few weeks.

When you're looking for the best ground covers for your garden, look for plants that are tough and adaptable to different types of soils

Once you place one of these plants in your garden, there should be little to worry about, as they will soon spread and grow independently. Once they've done so, you'll add another layer of protection from weeds to your garden while also gaining an attractive aesthetic.
