|We have three banks currently covered with juniper. They are dying and are about 6 years old. The county extentsion office said it was probably my soil. We have been taking the dead ones up and it looks like a drainage problem. We have a 12 foot slope that has been terraced with three banks.|
|If the soil is too moist for junipers, you might try growing Lily-of-the-Valley, Pachysandra, dwarf pussywillow, vinca minor, carpet rose or Yellowroot (Xanthorhiza simplicissima). Or, you might try to improve drainage by installing drainage at the base of each terraced area.|
Best wishes with your landscape!
