The Complete Book of Ground Covers

Regular price $50.00
Ground covers are an essential part of any garden. Functionally, they suppress weeds, reduce maintenance, control erosion, and improve the environment. Aesthetically, they soften hard edges, visually knit together other garden plants and features, and create a canvas to showcase focal point plants, buildings, and sculpture.
 
The Complete Book of Ground Covers by professional nurseryman Gary Lewis, shares 4000 outstanding varieties, from Acaena to Xanthorhiza. Each plant profile includes botanic and common names, hardiness zones, size and habit, native ranges, and details on special hybrids or varieties.
