Plants that can stand some foot traffic deserve a spot in every garden. They are hardworking, soften your hard scape, and add texture, scent and beauty to an otherwise utilitarian space…a walkway.
Just because a plant can take light foot traffic doesn’t mean you should play football on it. These plants still need water and basic care, but are low maintenance plants. Make sure you pay attention to their sun/shade and water needs. Many of them spread and multiply as well. Planted around garden paths, as an alternative lawn for a light traffic yard or as erosion control, these are our favorite “stepables”.
