Ground cover on a slope?
Can someone suggest good shrubs to plant on a steep slope to prevent erosion and keep out weeds? I live north of Atlanta.
Basically, we are going to have to cut down two dead trees on a slope in front of my house. The slope's quite steep and I'm concerned that once the trees are gone, they will be overgrown with weeds. I don't think pinestraw or landscape fabric will hold up in strong rain. I'm not keen on English Ivy or invasive ground covers.
Any ideas on what plants/shrubs can do the trick?
