Hill Problem, thinking of using Chamomile (Roman)
I have a large slope at the rear of my house. It slopes down away from my property (behind a retaining wall). I want to plant something there that can be accomplish multipe goals. 1: maintain the slope, 2: reduce/elimante routine maintenance, 3: make it a herb garden (possibly)?
I came across Roman Chamomille as a potential solution -- it's used as a lawn in other countries. It's a perennial, it's low growing (6-9"), and it's self seeding. On the downside, it doesn't compete well.. And my hill is made of a clay like soil (I'm in PA).
To my questions:
1. how do I kill off all the vegatation on the hill, without causing an erosion issue?
2. how do I plant the Chamomile (I've only found it in seeds) on the hill? do I need to worry about it sliding to the bottom?
3. It this a feasible solution?
