Slope issue

Posted by myselfandi 8 (My Page) on

I have some butterfly bush planted on a slope. Any mulch I put down (even pinestraw) seems to wash away quickly and then the weeds take over. I am constantly weeding this area. Does anyone have an idea for a ground cover that could grow around these butterfly bushes to help with weed control or maybe a better mulch solution for a slope? This area is full sun. Any suggestions will be appreciated!

How about leveling a small area around each bush, and put down some landscape cloth--then cover with stones. Ivy might work on the remainder of the hillside.
