Vines as Ground Covers

When most people think of vines, they think vertical growth. However, many types of vines can also be used as ground covers.

Even though this was posted long ago, I just found it and it's a great idea! I have a lot of areas where there are presently weeds. These groundcovers would look a heck of a lot better! We have deer and rabbits that eat our landscaping, so maybe these would keep them munching and they'd leave the rest of the landscape alone! Smiling
Thanks for a great idea. Thank You!

Thank you Karen! Hope it works out well for you. We have deer and rabbit problems too so I feel your pain.

I'll get some different groundcovers in the Spring, and I sure hope they will take off and grow well. If the critters would eat on them, it'd be wonderful! I'm trying to convince my husband we need the whole area deer fenced. Smiling (It's 10 acres, lol!)

That's a lot of fencing! Is all 10 acres gardens?

Oh no! That's what I'd love, but practically speaking, I'm just trying to work with about half an acre at the moment. My husband thinks it should all be left natural. Sighing!
