Add Another Layer of Colour

Groundcover plants that grow outwards rather than upwards are excellent for adding colour to large areas and also suppressing weeds and preventing erosion on slopes. Meanwhile, ornamental grasses add great low-maintenance highlights.

Choosing the Right Plants

The right groundcover or grassy highlight can add a whole new dimension to your garden. Talk to us about your location and we can help you decide what will work best.
