We have maybe a 50 feet length of sunny 30-45 degree slope. Grass hard to mow. What can I do there?

Sounds like you have a landscaping nightmare! Some really rugged groundcovers include Ajuga (Carpet bugle), Hedra (ivy), Cotoneaster (pyracantha), and Vinca minor (periwinkle). Another option is to build terraced garden beds, which resemble broad steps up the slope. It's more work to install, but you'll expand the range of plants you can work with. Enjoy!
