Go Grass-Free in June Woth Unique Groundcovers

A Fragrant Ground Cover

Sweet Woodruff (Galium odoratum) is a shade garden delight, and the perfect groundcover for adding fragrance to your garden space while reducing lawn areas.  It’s fast growing, insect repellent, low maintainance, quick to establish, and it isn’t prone to invasiveness, though you do need to keep it in check.  Sweet Woodruff has white spring flowers and an attractive foilage that looks nice in winter, with leaves that smell like freshly mown hay when crushed. Best of all? If you lose some grass, you save on water bills, and help prevent erosion in your garden.
