What are ground covering plants?
Ground covers are low-growing plants that, with their dense growth habit, spread quickly in width. They propagate by making offshoots. This green carpet often requires little maintenance and is ideal for planting under shrubs, bushes or trees. It can also brighten up the border.
A green carpet with ground covers
A bare, ugly spot in the garden is a shame! Why not fill it up with suitable ground-covering plants? Doing this is not only pleasing to the eye, but there are also practical advantages:
- Garden ground covers protect the soil from drying out;
- Weeds hardly get a chance;
- Pruning isn't required, but only necessary to keep the plant from growing to the neighbours' garden;
- In places where you don't walk all that much, they are an excellent alternative to sod. Adding ground covers enhances the creative interest of your outdoor space;
- In regards to the previous point: the more variation in vegetation, the more you stimulate biodiversity.
How do I plant my ground covers?
Solid ground covers are perfect for greening a border or brightening up an uninteresting spot. First, clear the soil of weeds, add some compost to improve its structure and then plant the ground covers in holes large enough for the spreading roots. After planting, level the soil between the plants with a rake and water thoroughly. In the first year, it will be necessary to weed regularly. It isn't required to limit yourself to one species. Plant low ground covering perennials at the front of the border and gradually add higher plants towards the rear. This way, you get a playful and exciting effect.
