Question: What low ground cover would be good for

Answer: There are many possible choices you could use, depending on your personal taste. I personally would like something low and evergreen or semi evergreen such as a blue toned carpet juniper, creeping thyme (Thymus serpyllum) or possibly creeping phlox (Phlox subulata). You could also use a low growing sedum. These all do well in full sun and a well drained soil, they could spread slightly to soften the edges of your path. Your local garden center staff may have additional suggestions based on a more detailed understanding of the amount of space to be covered and your design goals.
