Carpeting ground covers are a fantastic alternative to lawns and soil covers such as gravel, pea straw or bark. They are the perfect companion to footpaths as they quickly fill in any exposed soil and create these stunning displays.
An uncovered soil in the garden is a magnet for weeds and the soil will dry out very quickly and get degraded by the sun, which will create issues for your plants. Using carpeting ground covers as living mulch is your best solution as they will protect your soil, keep the weeds at bay, provide a habitat for beneficial insects and build your soil up. The best part is that its an easy way to add interesting textures and colours with their attractive leaves and flowers.
We have put together a list of our top carpeting ground covers that can inspire you to add a magical touch to your garden.
