Lawn Alternatives & Ground Covers


This week we are featuring plants that serve as exceptional alternatives to your traditional lawn as well as some standout winter-hardy ground covers.

Juncus tenuis is an example of a perennial that grows well in semi-shade and moist, even wetland-type, soil. In an area where a traditional lawn may struggle to thrive, along roads, on waste ground and even by heavily-traveled pathways, this type of ‘poverty rush’ provides exceptional plant diversity.
