Groundcover refers to dense low herbaceous plants, usually between 5-20cm in height, that grow over an area of ground. There are many types of groundcovers, from grasses to vines, perennials or sedums. They are used to provide protection from erosion and drought, to fill in difficult spots where other plants are unable to grow or thrive, to prevent weeds from growing and to improve the aesthetic appearance of a place by concealing the bare earth.
