Ground cover for a hill.

Asked by Richard Allen Franks
Columbia, TN

I have a couple very steep hills that I need some type of ground cover to keep them from eroding. They are too steep to mow and I need something that spreads out to prevent erosion and keep out weeds. I live in Tennessee.

Ivy is a super resilient groundcover, used commonly over much of the US. It grows very quickly, and holds soil.
