Groundcovers can add interesting contrasts in texture and color to your landscape. They’re attractive and reduce maintenance.
There are groundcovers for shady areas, sunny spots, and everything in between. They’re great for those hard-to-maintain places in your landscape, like small spaces that the mower can’t get into or steep slopes.
Some groundcovers should be used alone, while others, like perennial peanut, can be incorporated into turf and even mowed.
Some of the most adaptable groundcovers are native Florida plants, like the beach sunflower, some ferns, and railroad vine. Other attractive groundcovers include liriope and Asiatic jasmine. Make sure you choose the right groundcover for your area and landscape.
