Problem solvers: Ground cover plants

Whether you’re a passionate gardener, a dabbler or a gardener who enjoys a beautiful, landscaped space from the comfort of your outdoor sofa, you all probably share one thing in common: a dislike of weeds. 

Ground cover plants take up all the space that weeds usually steal while bringing a whole heap of other benefits to your garden.

Covering all the bases

Ground covers prevent weed seed germination, retain moisture, control erosion, and form a living mulch creating a happy place for bees and butterflies while adding foliage, colour, flowers or scent. We have a great range of native, flowering, scented, edible, creeping, carpeting, edging, and fringing ground cover plants for sale.

Ground covers – the more attractive, environmentally friendly choice

While grass is the most common way to fill out empty spaces, we think low-growing plants are just a better option. The right ground cover will accentuate the plants near it and reduce the amount of lawn care, noise-polluting petrol-sucking lawnmower use and fertilisers needed. You’ll also fix your garden’s trouble spots and give weeds the heave-ho without using loads of herbicides. By investing in some serious low-maintenance gardening, you’ll be planting for the greater good of the environment and the community.

The right ground cover plant is a saving grace

To qualify for being a very cool, low-maintenance groundcover, however, plants need to be vigorous enough to fill in an area but not be so vigorous they become a nuisance. They should offer some sort of visual interest, providing an attractive background for their more vertical counterparts behind them and be dead easy to grow.
