The natural weeding: use ground-covering plants

Ground cover plants

Advice for ground-covering plantings:

- Before planting: clean the area by removing all weeds
- Prepare the ground: loosen the soil clods and bring in compost if the ground is poor
- Do the planting and be aware of each plant’s plantation density, to cover the area and allow a good development for each variety
- Water after planting and keep an eye on the humidity during the following months

Once they are deep-rooted, the ground-covering plants offer a dense and rich vegetated space, which resists weather variations and needs a little or no care: the plants which develop the most could be pruned if needed.

Combining a convenient and decorating role with the maintaining of the soils and the diversity of the species, the ground-covering plants are the best solution if you want to cover one part or the whole of your garden: flowerbeds, banks, low walls, terrace borders, plot borders, passing lanes, rough terrains, etc.
