Banks and Slopes

Difficult to access, prone to erosion or dry soil, banks and slopes can be challenging for most gardeners. Planting them up with the right plants will help counter erosion, slow water runoff, provide quick coverage and reduce maintenance. There are many types of shrubs, perennials, vigorous vines or groundcovers that can be used. Not to forget colorful wildflowers to add a very natural look.
