Hillside and Slope Planting

Do you have a challenging slope or hillside? Determining whether you use a STEPABLE Creeping Perennial

Look below to see which plants would be the best for your area.

STEPABLE Creeping Perennials are fantastic for planting larger slopes. Each plant will hug and creep tightly to the ground, holding soil in and keeping weeds out.      All-Terrain Ground Covers are perfect for those steep hillsides that require erosion control on a large scale and maintence is difficult.

STEPABLE Creeping Perennials work very well on smaller scale slopes where adding bark or much year after year is cost prohibitive.   All Terrain Ground Covers are great on large scale slopes where color and contrast are needed to bring about an element of interest.
