In the garden design, ground cover plants refer to low shrub plants that cover the ground. They include perennial low-altitude herbaceous plants, indica bushes, and vines. Compared with other plants, the ground cover plants are dense and low in density and easy to manage. The actual application can cover the ground surface instead of the lawn, and can play a role in preventing water and soil loss, and can be used for landscaping to purify air, eliminate pollution, and adsorb dust. At the same time it has ornamental value and economic value, so it is widely used in landscape design. This paper mainly discusses the selection and application of ground cover plants in landscape design.
