GROUND-COVER

We sell a wide variety of ground covers, ready to plant in your landscape (1 quart or 1 gallon containers). Ground Covers are ideal for covering steep banks that you don't want to mow. They keep the weeds out, help with erosion control, and look great while being low maintenance. They are also great in beds as mass plantings, or under trees. Choose between different colors, textures, and sizes of evergreen ground cover, as well as perennial & flowering ground cover.  You can be creative with mixing several different varieties for visual interest. We will be adding new varieties as they become available.
