I moved into a new development and our back yard has a 10 ft. upward hillside with full sun all day. The developer planted some azaleas and evergreens along the hill, which are not my favorite but helps with erosion. I was looking to fill in the area with some type of low maintence ground cover that will not be invasive onto my neighbors property. I have tried to mulch the area but due to erosion, that has pretty much washed away. Any low cost, low maintenance solutions. Thank you.

There are a number of non-invasive evergreen groundcovers for you to consider. Try ajuga (carpet bugle), pachysandra, euonymus, vinca minor, wild ginger, dead nettle or ornamental wild strawberry (fragaria). Wild strawberry is low growing, flowers throughout the summer and produces small but inedible berries.

Best wishes with your landscape.
