I have a bed at about a 20 degree sloe that is eroding the bed every where but at the top. What would be the best way to control the erosion,
Thank You

Grasses are very good at erosion control because they have fibrous roots that help knit the soil together. There are lots of attractive ornamental grasses you can use or you can find a groundcover to plant in the spot (or maybe a combination of the two). Creeping phlox, creeping thyme, Gaillardia (Blanket flower) and ajuga (carpet bugle) are all sun loving ground covers. Hope these suggestions are helpful.
