5 Ways to Cover Ground (and Give the Lawnmower a Rest)

Thursday, October 11, 2018 -
10:00am to 12:00pm

Grassy lawns are the single most popular groundcover, but they are not always the best choice for a location or the easiest to maintain. Old Saybrook landscape designer Kathy Connolly offers alternative strategies for "covering ground." She explores low-growing, durable groundcovers, which include native ornamental grasses, flowering perennials, low-mow lawn mixes, sedum, ferns, moss, and more. She also discusses flowering meadows as a groundcovering alternative. An extensive handout accompanies the session.
