Question: I have frontyard slope w azaleas, decorative rocks for stability. Dirt, rocks slowly sliding down. Need suggestions, books, help Thank you

Answer: Instead of the rocks, you need some fibrous rooted groundcover plants to help slow erosion. Things like kinnikinnik or ajuga or even ornamental grasses will help stablize the slope.
