ground cover on a hill
I have a pretty steep hill on the side of my yard. The ground is washing away and the grass with it. I thought about applying ground cover but am afraid it will wash away as well. I had the idea of applying chicken wire to the ground prior to planting the ground cover. Do you think that will help? If not, do you have any other suggestions?

I don't think chicken wire will help this tough erosion problem. Let me recommend that you use the services of a professional landscaper to help you solve your dilemma. If even grass is washing away, you may need terracing or some other form of permanent erosion control.

I have a steep front lawn that has full sun all day. I would like to terrace it and plant it. What plants, shrubs, flowers, etc. would be good?
