I have some steep, sunny banks around the house that are difficult to mow. What should I plant that will cover well, hold the soil, and look nice?
Sounds perfect for growing sun-loving herbal ground covers such as thyme, wild strawberries, white clover, or violets — anything low growing and hardy. If you don’t mind taller plants, oregano, chamomile, and various mints will work. Once the plants are established, you won’t have to worry about weeding or mowing.
