Low growth Sedums have low water levels, but needs grow on steep slopes

Driving higher thru neighborhoods, generally houses several feet above the sidewalk, with a bank of sloping down to street level. This is a challenging site to grow plants.

Water quickly drips rather than dipping in often leads to erosion. A steep slope may need to be modified by the terraces or the creation of a retaining wall. For gradual slopes, planting vegetation cover is a cost-effective solution to deal with these problem areas, while stabilizing the soil, reducing maintenance by igniting a negative monstrosity in a beautiful garden.

To do this job is to use vegetable covers that are fast to form a solid, ground-retaining mass. You will want the space to be a little closer to the time of planting and make sure the well water for the first year so your roots can be established in your new environment.

A strategic location of large rocks buried approximately 1/3 of the way into the ground adds interest and breaks the flat surface of view.

A favorite and adaptable vegetable cover is Ajuga chocolate chip with persistent roots and rapid spread. Ajuga is tenacious, diffusing through runners, or ground-level drift that plants root and form new ones. The program also provides drowning weeds along the way. Great for sunny or shady places on a slope.

Phlox subulata forms shallow roots and its horizontal stems light easily so its common name creeping Phlox. Its perennial foliage remains attractive throughout the year and its spring flowers are nothing short of beautiful.

Daylilies form a dense layer and are ideal for the control of erosion as the root trap leaves the water that it uses during dry periods. A short reblooming growth daylily as in Happy Returns or running bananas would be a good Quick propagation of the Aegopodium plant where you can allow wandering choice
