reducing mulch and replacing with ground cover by joanne neale www.pithandvigor.com

Let’s face it, anywhere you put mulch, you can dig a hole and plant ground cover. Indeed, ground cover plants are simply living mulches that don’t cost time or money to install every spring. Just like mulch they help retain soil moisture, and they keep weeds from crowding in. Ground cover also provides an extra layer of color and, often, beautiful flowers.

In the Spring Issue of PITH + VIGOR Joanne Neale discusses a wide variety of plants for every type of garden that will help reduce your dependence on mulch.
