What ground cover for a steep bank?
We have a bank about 8 ft high at an angle of about 35 degrees. It is southfacing, and sandy soil. Trees around and the slope itself mean the ground can dry out.
It has been suggested that it should be planted through a weed suppression layer with lonicera pileata. My concern is the maintainability of this in the future since I believe lonicera pileata needs regular clipping to keep as a ground cover.
Does anyone have any comments? Or suggestions for a better groundcover planting? Bournemouth area.
