Evergreen ground cover under Laurel hedge
My 6 foot Laurel hedge screens my garden from the footpath. Unfortunately, the bottom of the hedge is quite bear and the footpath is visible when I'd prefer it not to be (see photos below).
I am looking for a suitable evergreen groundcover plant that can be grown underneath and kept to a maximum of 12" height, complementing the Laurel as well as screening the footpath.
I am not looking for anything too woody or 'stemy' but something rather leafy and capable of growing with medium levels of light (moderate shade). Any help is appreciated.
