Extension news and highlights

Grassy green and yellow striped mounded plant.

Ground covers can cover an area of your yard or garden for one season, a few seasons, or many years. They reduce weed pressure and add beauty, and also enhance soil health, provide food and habitat for pollinators, and reduce soil erosion.
