Tired of maintaining a grassy lawn? Prepare for spring and find inspiration to start replacing parts of your lawn with groundcovers.
By Julie A. MartensMore in Outdoors
Before trading in your turf, consider how much traffic will occur over your lawn replacement. For heavy traffic, miniature brass buttons is the plant of choice. A combination of above and below ground runners combine to create a thick mat that can even withstand car traffic up to twice a day. Miniature brass buttons features serrated leaves and thrives in part to full shade. Moisture is critical; this lawn alternative isn’t drought tolerant. Plants are hardy in Zones 7 to 10.
