The Q&A Archives: Slope groundcover

Question: I have a sandy south facing slope. It is a large area that dose not support grass. Small amounts of vinca vine are growing okay. I would like to plant an attractive ground cover that will spread to the entire slope area. What would work well?

Answer: You might try wide spreading, low growing junipers. Another possibility might be Phlox subulata. Yet another choice might be sedums of any kind. Your local professional nursery staff should be able to help you select plants that will do well there and also meet your design goals.
