Ground Cover Seed

Prevent erosion with beautiful, low-maintenance ground covers

Ground covers work to prevent soil erosion and to bring beauty to hard-to-maintain areas. Whether you’re planting an entire field, rethinking a residential lawn, or filling in a small-but-difficult area (such as a steep bank), choose a ground cover that will work for your climate and soil. Many provide colorful flowers, visually-pleasing textures, and vital habitat for pollinators. Once your ground cover is established, mowing, watering, and weeding chores will become much more manageable.
