slope with old, dying junipers
We have a slope covered with old juniper shrubs - probably original landscaping and 60 years old. They are dying back - exposing parts of the slope. Is there a drought tolerant shrub with good erosion control that I can plant in amongst the juniper to fill in the bare spots? I was thinking some kind of acacia? (more junipers?) Other suggestions welcome - What about root competition? I can't pull out the junipers - it would totally destabilize the slope. oh - this slope only gets occasional hand watering in summer - no sprinkler system in place at this point - but that's not out of the question. Thanks for any suggestions.
