Low Growing Plants To Plant Along Or In A Walkway

Dummer. ゛☀

Many gardeners love the look of stone walkways, patios and driveways, but these types of hardscapes have their difficulties. Many times, they may look too harsh or are prone to allow difficult to remove weeds to grow. A good solution to both of these problems is to add low growing plants between the stones. Not only do low growing grass and other ground cover plants soften the look of the stone, but they are a low maintenance way to keep weeds away.
Low Growing Plants for Walkways

In order for low garden plants to make good walkway plants, they need to have a few traits. First, they must be somewhat drought tolerant, as walkway stones may not allow much water to reach the roots. Second, they must be tolerant of both heat and cold, as the stones can hold onto both the heat of the sun in summer and the cold in the winter. Lastly, these ground cover plants but be able to take being walked on at least a little bit. Above all, they must be low growing plants.
Here are several low growing grasses and ground cover plants that meet these requirements:
Ajuga
Pussytoes
MountainRockcress
Artemisia
Snow in Summer
Roman Chamomile
Miniature Rush
Fleabane
Ground Ivy
Green Carpet Herniaria
Leptinella
White Toadflax
Creeping Jenny
Mazus
Dwarf Mondo Grass
Golden Marjoram
Potentilla
Pratia
Scotch or Irish Moss
Most low growing sedums
Soleirolia
Creeping thyme
Speedwell
Violets
While these hardy low garden plants will work between the stones of your walkway, they are not the only options available. If you find a plant you feel will make a good walkway plant, give it a try.
