ground cover yard

Asked April 18, 2018, 5:14 PM EDT

Have a section of lawn, roughly 50'X8', that is sloped to the point where mowing is quite the adventure on a riding mower and I am looking to add additional soil that will increase the slope. Would like a recommendation for ground cover hopefully with the following attributes: 1, can be grown from seed 2. flowers the majority of the year 3. little or no creeping 4. limited maintenance Thank you Ernest Husmann

Hi Ernest, I am not sure if there is a plant that meets all your requirements. But I did find a good publication from Washington State University which gives a lot of good options for ground covers.
