Although it first appears to be a sea of green, the Groundcover collection is home to a rich variety of plants. These herbaceous perennials and low-growing shrubs offer a sustainable alternative to traditional lawns, as they spread quickly to crowd out weeds, prevent soil erosion, and provide shelter to birds, insects, and other wildlife. The effect is both cooling and calming, offering visitors a respite during the hot summer months.
