Low ground cover along sloping fence line

Asked February 25, 2016, 10:10 PM EST

I have used roundup and other sprays to save on weed eating along fences on my land,now I am seeing the start or erosion issues. Any suggestions for slow growing grasses or low ground cover to seed or plant that will not take over regular grasses? Also have Sheep on land so do not want to plant anything harmful to them.

You might want to look into one of the fine fescues. It is not too difficult to find red fescue as it is often marketed as a shade type of grass. Overall, the fine fescues grow slower than tall fescue. Thanks.
