Hi, I'm David with Smartscapes, LLC here in Nashville, Tennessee, and I'm here to talk to you today about ground covers. Ground covers they have a huge application in your landscape. Most people kind of ignore it. They don't really feel like it's that important. But take for example the front of this house. The front of this house we have a low border going up to the front porch. We don't want just bare bed space there so we used some English ivy to fill in the gaps. We wanted something to stay small, cover it, give an interest, give texture. And it does that job perfectly. In front of that you'll see where we have some juniper. And it's more of a spreader type juniper and it would be considered a ground cover as well. Now it gets a little bit higher but we, it also drops over here as well so we have room for the juniper to grow in. And it kind of gives, kind of gives a foundation planning effect on this low area and adds that interest that we desire. Now, ground covers, they have more than just that application. They do a world of things. We often use ground covers to stabilize hillsides. We use ground covers to accent a wooded area, in front of a wooded landscape. Give that border a definition in between the yard. A lot of people overlook ground covers but ground covers can be a very important part of your landscape. Again, I'm David with Smartscapes, LLC here in Nashville, Tennessee. Come see us at www.landscapenashville.com.
