Can anyone suggest alternative options than having grass on a steep
slope I have. The slope is down my lane so not overly close to the
house. Want a low maintenance way of covering the ground without the
hassle of having to cut grass.
Open google.com then insert the search terms 'ground cover plant' (without
the quotes) and press the enter key. You will receive a huge number of
suggestions. Pick something which suits your growing conditions and budget
and go for it. Not knowing anything about your needs other than 'slope' it
is impossible for anyone to suggest more -- a sunny fertile south-facing
slope in Surrey will be different than a shaded rocky north-facing slope in
Sutherland. Prices for ground cover varies all over the map. Buying a
half-kilo of crown vetch seeds is cheap. Buying a thousand pre-started
Vinca is expensive.
Personally, I'm cursed by about 1/4 of an acre of English Ivy which is
eating the strip of woods, bright sun to deep shade, between my house and
the road and which has proven to be totally unkillable despite being
totally free. I will gladly give it to you and will guarantee that it will
grow virtually anywhere but you need to come and dig it up and transport it
