Compost or mulch on slope
A year and a half ago we landscaped a rather steep slope. At that time we put newspaper, jute netting to hold the mulch and mulch down to suppress the weeds. Last summer the newspaper/mulch combo worked pretty well to suppress the weeds.
We are about to enter our second spring and have some weeds that need removing, and I am thinking about adding compost over everything to help suppress new weeds and feed the soil.
Because the slope is so steep, we try to stay off of the slope as much as possible and we will want to try to weed only a couple of times a year in certain areas.
Is compost the best product to use or should we use mulch? The original mulch we used was a black mulch that was wood with a bit of manure/compost added to make it black.
The main goal is to stay off the slope yet contain the weeds.
