The Q&A Archives: Ground Cover Choices

Question: I am landscaping my yard. I want to put ground cover down by the parkway (the grassy area between the street and the sidewalk). My sprinkler heads pop up 4"... I am looking for a ground cover that takes full sun and does not grow taller than 4". Thank you for your suggestions. Have a great day. Tracy

Answer: Some ground-hugging choices include Ajuga (carpet bugle), Potentilla (Cinquefoil), Lysimachia nummularia, Fragaria (ornamental strawberry), Lamium (dead nettle), or Asarum (wild ginger). Enjoy your new landscape!
