Ground Cover for Garden Pathways

Soften the hard edges of stone steps, paths, or patios with tough but pretty ground covers that can withstand more than a little stomping!

Creeping Perennials: Ground-hugging perennials like vinca, thyme, and creeping Jenny make an excellent no-mow lawn cover. (#lawn #garden)

Foliage ground covers. Well-placed foliage can be just as stunning as flowers and many are very low maintenance.

There are very few ground covers that can be walked-on, but creeping thyme is one of them. So it makes an ideal ground cover to use between stepping stones, near the patio adjoining walkways or around stones and boulders.

Creeping Jenny comes back every year and keeps out the weeds. I love it in my flowerbeds, spreads. Great contrast color to plants and flowers. // Great Gardens & Ideas //

Love the thyme planted in between these pavers for low-maintenance beauty.

Now, a year later, I can honestly say it was worth it. As I walked across the courtyard this morning, the scent was heavy in the air and the colors of the wooly thyme, creeping thyme, "little prince" thyme, and elfin thyme had that tapestry look I was hoping for.

Pathways Design Ideas for Home and Garden

Cheap patio stones inter-planted with small ground cover or "stepables" creates an elegant formal look......

I love the creeping thyme for pathway filler, looks like grass but you dont have to mow it, plus it will smell good when you walk on it!

Plant Thyme in areas where grass won't grow. Like this for front walk, smells so good!
