The Q&A Archives: ground cover

Question: i am looking for a fast growing ground cover that will be suitible for a steep bank about 10 high and 30 foot long. something that will choke out weeds would be great. the soil is of poor quality. i have tried wintercreeper. its not working out to well. also a suggestion for a vine that would cover a lattice screen i built to cover a cut bank. thanks dave

Answer: David,

I am sorry for this delayed reply to your gardening question. We are transitioning to a new Q&A system and your question was unfortunately lost in the transition. I have discovered it now and hope this reply is not too late to be of help.

Groundcovers come in many types. Grasses such as clumping ornamental grasses are the best at holding soil. Other options include prostrate types of juniper and Lavender Cotton (Santolina).

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
