Ground cover

Stabroek News Sunday - - SUNDAY STYLE -

If you have an open space and do not know what to plant, you should con­sider some ground cover.

Ground cover pre­vent ero­sion and en­hances the area in your yard. Here are some ben­e­fits of plant­ing ground cover: 1. It is known for its abil­ity to spread. 2. It is great for the en­vi­ron­ment. 3. It saves you money as it is low main­te­nance and in­ex­pen­sive. 4. It fills gaps in open spa­ces. 5. It beau­ti­fies and adds to your land­scape. Ground cover is ba­si­cally plants that grow low. You can choose ei­ther green fo­liage or flow­er­ing plants. When plant­ing your ground cover, you can use paving stones to create a sim­ple walk­way or dec­o­ra­tive peb­bles or rocks to en­hance the area.

Some ex­am­ples of easy-to-grow ground cover in Guyana are yel­low daisy, jump up and kiss me, flame vi­o­let, lan­tana, dwarf rhoeo, and wan­der­ing jew. Have fun plant­ing your ground cover. Un­til next week, Happy Gar­den­ing.
