I have a house with an incline in the front of the house and also on the side of the drive way. I need suggestions for ground covers to put on these inclines that will be easy to maintain.

I'm not sure how steep your incline is but English Ivy (Hedra helix) works very well for a ground cover as it stays low and is continues to root along its stems to help prevent erosion on a steep slope. You can try other ground covers such as liriope, pachasandra, creeping euonymous if you are looking for something else other than the ivy. Hope this helps and good luck with your garden.
