Newbie gardener- what groundcover would look good here- pics

marciab10May 4, 2009

We recently moved to a new home with lots of planting areas. I have always loved to plant lots of annuals every year at all the homes we've owned, this house has alot more ground to cover.. and I need some perennial ground covers.

This area actually has three kind of separate areas.. it is transitioning from the street level of our house down to a walk out, lower level and garage. This weekend I weeded and turned over the mulch in the top area, and planted some annuals. To start, I'm concentrating on the upper and mid levels. Would love some ideas on what kind of ground covers would look nice

It looks very nice Marcia.
Welcome to N. IL.

If you are near zip 61014 you can come out and look at my groundcovers and see what some zone 5 hardy ones look like in mass.

or you can look at some via pics at link below...
