How do I plant ground cover on a hill? The hill is pretty rocky but had ivy. I took that down because it is next to the pool and it was getting alot of bees. I am wondering what is a good ground cover that doesn't get to many bees?

thank you for your time

Try rosemary, juniper, or Dwarf coyote brush. There are two varieties in the trade: Pigeon Point and Twin Peaks. Both are bright green in summer and dislike summer water once established. They have an excellent root system that binds slopes and prevents erosion. As a California native, it will be hardy once established.
