Native ground covers are the workhorses of vibrant, multi-layered landscapes, offering a rich alternative to monoculture lawns. These low-growing plants form a vital living mulch that protects and enriches soil, and their beautiful tapestry of foliage, blooms and berries offers a long season of interest to people and pollinators.
This guide demonstrates how to incorporate ground covers into biodiversity efforts in urban green spaces, around residential settings and along roadsides. Learn about individual species and inspiring combinations that can make landscapes more attractive, climate-resilient and beneficial to wildlife.
