Steep Drainage Ditch ground cover, Juniper?

joefalco(z8 MB SC)May 18, 2009

I have a steep drainage ditch in front of my house. This ditch get full of weed. It is hard to control I need to weed wack it, It is too steep for a mower.

I was thinking of using a ground cover juniper for this area. Will a ground cover juniper cling to a steep slope and take over weeds?

Any better suggestions?

First, if the city, county or state own the ditch then you better check with them. If they own it they control the use of it not you. Second, control the weeds before during any plant if it is permissible.
