Flower Gardening on a slope
Part of my new yard has a slope. It was impossible to mow grass so the first occupants surrounded it with edging and made a flower bed. I am told it was quite a sight and always in bloom. The next residents let it go and now all that is left are some daylilies and two rhododendrons . I really don't think it is the right place for them so seek advice. They are about 2 foot tall now.
The second question is what is best to place on a slope. What are easy maintenance but hardy? It's hard to dig as you slide downwards sometimes, but I have managed to put in some hostas. Around the edge I have placed ice plant and monkey grass, thinking they are pretty easy to grow. It has not rained since and I have visions of everything washing away when it does.
The top is quite dry, the bottom moist.
It would be great if I could terrace it but I can't financially manage that right now.
My daughter in law suggested getting some big rocks and making a rockery, but then the problem is how do I get big rocks home.
Any ideas, suggestions or tips welcome?
