Options instead of grass for a sunny slope
Hi, Well personally I don't recommend tossing a wildflower mix on the hillside because then you don't know what to weed out and what to keep. I would consider planting a ground cover on the slope that doesn't require much maintenance. Keep in mind that if you turn this slope into a garden, you won't have to mow it anymore, but you will need to weed it. In your region, you have a wide selection of plants to choose from. I would go to our Plant Encyclopedia on this website and do an Advanced Search, plugging in your criteria so it gives you a customized plant list.
