This section is particularly useful for people currently landscaping their garden. You'll find lots of ground covers and bed fillers that work well in tropical garden design.

Ground covers can help conserve moisture in the ground, stop erosion of the soils and brighten up the garden. They can be used simply to cover a bare piece of earth, in rockeries, on banks, can be used to help suppress weed growth if a dense cover is established and also act as a barrier between lawns and garden beds.

Visually ground covers can be used to tie a tropical garden together and give it a polished professional look. They can bring color and contrast to your beds or be blended for a more natural look.
