Large Sloped area in NJ
I am looking for some suggestions that will balance my total inexperience here. Last summer I put top soil on a large slightly sloped area (about 1.5 acres and 15 degree slope) I started with grass seed to try to get a lawn look for a blank slate stage. It has been hard to keep the erosion in control and I feel I am losing the soil. My ultimate goal is to get an english garden look. To start off this process, would it be a good idea to put low growing ground cover such as walk-on-me thyme , as I am building flower plants in the area? Can I throw the seeds of such a plant over the area now? How will it work with the existing grassy patches I currently have? Is there a list of "what-not to do" in such a scenario?
Any thoughts are appreciated.
