Solutions for an embankment?
I have a small but steep embankment that is in the front of my house leading from my lawn down to the road. I have to mow it with the push mower and I have to walk along the road pushing the mower and I'm not able to hear on-coming cars.
Its a lot of work and its very unsafe. I was trying to come up with a solution so that this embankment would not have to be mowed. I was considering putting down black plastic and large landscape rocks that would not slide down the bank, then inserting some type of groundcover.
Any other ideas or soultions? What type of groundcover do you recommend for this situation?
