What to Plant:
Native Plants for Slope Stabilization
Slopes present an interesting set of challenges. Some are gentle and easier to manage, while others can be quite steep and difficult to maintain. There is often a gradient of sun and water changes, and soil erosion is a factor as well. These native plants can help with all of these issues as well as provide wildlife habitat and beauty for our eyes at the same time.
