Sun-proof groundcovers perfect for your Long Island landscaping

by on July 2, 2014

If your Long Island landscape is subject to long periods of unrelenting sunlight, Long Island landscaping professionals will advise you that not just any type of groundcover will endure. In order to create a successful Long Island landscape, you need to have a groundcover that can withstand the constant sunlight and heat that accompanies long periods of sunlight.

Part of having a beautiful Long Island landscape is employing inventive ideas that will give your property a distinguished appearance. Thyme, anemone and stonecrop are perfect Long Island landscaping options when your Long Island landscape is lacking proper shade.

Thyme is a dense groundcover that will successfully survive in sunny or partially sunny areas of your Long Island landscape. This option offers a variety of colors when it comes to foliage, from bright green and bluish to a greyer green and yields a beautiful pink or lavender flowering carpet. Perhaps you won’t want to step foot on this beautiful Long Island landscape canvass, but if you do, thyme holds up exceptionally well under occasional foot traffic.

Anemone is perfect for soils that are finicky. Blooming in the late spring, anemone produces tall and exquisite flowers that are certain to add to your sophisticated Long Island landscape. What makes anemone even more ideal is its high tolerance for dry soil.

Stonecrop also offers beautiful foliage and is a flowering groundcover. This ideal turf mat is capable of withstanding hot, dry weather, but also can endure cold, harsh winter weather. Depending on the variety, some stonecrop grows close to the ground and is not impeded by foot traffic; however other species are more delicate and would require an area not frequented by feet or paws.

If you aren’t sure what kind of groundcover would be best suited for your Long Island landscape, call your local Long Island landscaping company and have an expert help you decide what would be best to withstand the unvarying blazing and unforgiving heat of the sun.
