Any groundcover you plant will eventually creep into the adjoining lawn unless you place a barrier between the two areas. Ajuga (carpet bugle) is a low growing ground cover. Pachysandra, Bearberry (Arctostaphylos uva-ursi), Wild Ginger (Asarum canadense), Wintergreen (Gaultheria procumbens), or Vinca Minor. Enjoy your garden!
