Plants for Steep Hillsides

If you have a steel slope in your yard, you know how tricky it can be to landscape and maintain that area. Steep hillsides are seemingly impossible to deal with. Between the water runoff, the erosion, and trying to get a mower up the incline – it is tough work! Stop the hassle – it is time for a change!

There are certain plants that will actually thrive when planted on an incline. Once you have these plants established they will help with the erosion and water runoff issues. They will also make for a low maintenance slope because you will no longer have to struggle to push a mower up that steep slope.

Below is a list of plants that will look great on a hillside:

(If you are planting in sun)

  • Star jasmine
  • California lilac
  • Catmint
  • Snowberry
  • Creeping juniper
  • Forsythia
  • Little bluestem grass
  • Russian sage
  • Prairie dropseed
  • Purple coneflower
  • Rockrose

(If you are planting in shade)

  • Lily-of-the-valley
  • Common periwinkle
  • Astilbe
