Plant ground cover - keep weeds at bay

Ground covers keep the weeds at bay

If you plant ground cover, you can really keep weeds at bay and fill up unsightly gaps in the garden.

Ground covers keep weeds at bay
Ground cover plants are plants that are just above the ground and grow in width and not in height. Where ground cover grows, weeds grow a lot less. But they are also popular in the shade, under trees and the like. You can of course plant them in any perennial border to make the border even more attractive. There are ground cover plants that are only green and ground cover plants that bloom wonderfully. We would like to introduce you to five ground cover plants.
