Ground covers are small sized plants that grow over an area of land almost independently, are very beneficial and are the latest must-have for garden designs and landscape purposes as it poses dozens of functions and delightful aesthetic effects at the same time. They could serve as shields to soil bed, such as hills and slopes, from being exposed to direct sunlight, avoiding fast evaporation of water, thus preventing erosion. Ground covers densely envelop the surrounding earth in your yard which could eradicate weed growth and add color to difficult cultivating areas, such as soils in the sunny areas. These could also serve as protector for beneficial insects and earthworms from predating birds and could serve as shelter for desirable species in your yard, such as butterflies and bees.

Todd Nappi, President of New York Plantings Garden Designers and Landscape Contractors, professional horticulturist, explicates that ground covers create a beneficial environment on the ground around root system that closely resembles of that of a natural setting. He also added that ground covers have the ability to provide trees and shrubs non-compacted soil surface that enables water to reach roots quickly. Ground covers prevent soil from washing away around and under the trees as well as open spaces thus providing sufficient water supply to other plants.

What sets ground cover more convenient than lawn is the less landscape care and maintenance, meaning less lawn cutting. Many landscape and garden design have utilized low maintenance ground cover plantings to blanket areas which are traditionally covered by high-maintenance lawns. Ground covers, such as ivy and juniper, can save you time, effort and money on maintenance and create texture and color options that cannot be achieved by common turfs.
