Ground Cover

Ground Cover

Ground cover is vegetation that covers your soil or dirt. It used to prevent weeds and unwanted plants from growing. It could be grass, small plants, or shrubs that create shade to stop unwanted growth.

Ground cover is an effective method for reducing maintenance.

Grass Options

Grass is a low maintenance way to make your property stand out. Well maintained grass is clean and sophisticated. Turf is also a good choice if you have slopes or hills on your property. It stops soil from eroding during heavy rains.

Our commercial design team will assess if grass is the best option and help you make a decision that benefits your business.

Pine Straw

Pine straw is the product of pine needles falling to the ground. Since pine straw is a natural product it makes an eco-friendly alternative to mulch. You only have to rake it and move it to the desired location.

It prevents the growth of weeds, protects soil nutrients, and is used as a method to stabilize soil temperature. Pine straw may also release nutrients into your soil as it decays.


Mulch is the most popular type of ground cover. It’s used to prevent weeds in flower beds, improve soil health, keep moisture in soil, and make areas visually appealing. Mulch is created from many different sources:

  • Leaves
  • Grass Clippings
  • Peat Moss
  • Wood Chips
  • Bark
  • Straw
  • Inorganic Materials
