Lawns and Groundcovers

Groundcovers are plants which spread across the ground but do not grow tall, so no cutting is required. During the first year, new plantings of groundcovers will require weeding and mulching, but once established, little care is needed. Although groundcovers are usually perennials and evergreens, annuals make excellent groundcovers as well, but do require more work to replant each Spring.

In addition to a large variety of groundcovers available turf grass and flowering meadows can provide cover for large areas of land. Lawn and meadow grasses may be installed using pallets of rolled sod or through seed. Christensen Landscape Services specializes in the installation of drought tolerant meadow mixes which provide excellent food and cover for wildlife.
