The Q&A Archives: goundcovers

Question: I am planing on filling a small area about 10' X 10' with paving(large) stones for decoration but don't know what to use as a good ground cover for this area. The area will be in full sun and I'd like something that easily spreads, looks lush in between the stones, but not too much upkeep--what do you recommend?

Answer: Mindy,

I might try one of the many types of thyme in that area. Santolina is another option. There are both grey leaved and green leaved types.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
