Great Garden Cover-Ups
Plant the Crevices
Soften stone walkways with carpeting made of plants. Some rugged low-growers like thyme (Thymus spp.), sedum (Sedum spp.), and mint (Mentha spp.) thrive in the cramped spaces between pavers or bricks. In warmer climates, grow baby's tears (Soleirolia soleirolii), and lavender cotton (Santolina chamaecyparissus). Use a mixture of topsoil and compost to form a home for each sprig you plant.
