RELATED TOPICS: groundcover | groundcover
Why are we so fussy about low groundcovers? Primarily because the ground is the stage from which every other object in our miniature garden is measured. That floor is needed to balance the verticality of trees and structures—literally, to ground the scene. It keeps our interest cohesively glued from object to object. After spending considerable time clipping branches from the bottoms of little trees, it’s nice if the groundcover doesn’t obscure the tree’s tapered trunk.
