Steep clay Slope with Honeysuckle!!
Looking for some suggestions on how to deal with a very steep slope 15-25' tall, with primarily clay soil. There is alot of pesky Japanese Honeysuckle growing on it. We have planted 4 trees (fruit and such). The slope is on a North facing slope so in winter gets little to no light and in summer it gets a good bit of sun.
We would love to just landscape it with wonderful plants for beauty, but how would we get completely rid of the honeysuckle?
If we went for a groundcover like blue rug juniper or other (instead of the nice landscaping), will it smother out the honeysuckle? Or any suggestion on a plant(s) that would smother it out would be wonderful!
