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.

Ground covers are usually less than 1 foot high.
