Written in an accessible style by a distinguished grower of ground covers, it includes information on selecting, planting, maintaining, and propagating these plants. There are chapters on using native plants, ferns, ornamental grasses, and variegated ground covers, and on selecting the right plant for the terrain, for instance: fire-resistant plants for use in public areas where cigarettes are likely to be tossed; plants that will survive under black walnuts with their allelopathic substance; ground covers suitable for erosion-prone hillsides or where mowing is difficult; and those with beautiful foliage, color, or form. Ground cover solutions for any need can be found in the alphabetical listings of thousands of reliable, low-maintenance varieties, illustrated with more than 300 color photos.

He has been hybridizing, photographing, researching, lecturing on ground covers, and generally creating plant magic since 1983.David has written several articles for American Nurseryman. He also speaks about landscape photography, native plants, plant research and ecology, as well as his love of ground covers and gardening in Michigan (zone 5). His audience includes master gardeners, serious amateur gardeners, landscape contractors, designers, architects, and horticulture educators.
