Definition of ground cover

Categorized under "General"

Definition as written by mystic:

Low growing plants that spread quickly to cover the area where planted

Definition as written by Terry:

Ground covers are often used to prevent soil erosion because their roots will form a mat that stabilizes the soil and keep it from washing away in heavy rains. Often, vines and groundcovers are placed in the same category because many vining plants can be used as groundcovers.

Definition as written by talinum:

Ground covers are usually less than 1 foot high.
