Groundcovers

Groundcovers are an essential plant in a gardener’s toolbox, especially in situations where an alternative to turf or organic mulch is desired.  In most cases homeowners need a groundcover to fill a specific cultural niche: sun or shade. To emphasize this point, each groundcover is tagged with sun exposure symbols as it relates to conditions in Arkansas.
