should I put bark down on a sloped bank until ground cover matures?
I have removed all grass and weeds, have planted things like heucheras, campanula, sedums, geraniums, some ground cover perennials, nasturiums and have more things on order. I realise it will take a few years to cover the slope. Is it easier to manage with bark on it until then? It gets morning/afternoon sun, so the top will dry out quick quickly the way it is. The other thing is that there is couchgrass trying to grow in from the neighbouring field. Is there anything I can plant that will climb up the wire and keep smother it out?
