Ground cover plants - suggestions
I'm looking for suggestions of good ground covering plants.
It's for a border area, around the edge of a lawn with a large hedge behind the border.
I'm looking for plants that will spread a thick "carpet" the width and length of the border, not grow too tall and will suppress weed growth.
But the plants will also need to be hardy enough to withstand being stood on with a step ladder. So that we can maintain the hedge behind the border.
Also nice colour or berries etc would be a bonus...
Thanks for any advice you can give.
