Plant cover on a hill

edited July 2012 in Patio, Deck, & Pavers 0.00 Karma
We have one area of our yard that is on a hill, so water runs off quickly. What is a good plant cover for full sun that might work here? The area is not terraced, but we really need something other than just grass. The soil is good.

    English Ivy is your answer. I planted 3 sprigs years ago and now I have it all the way around my pool fence and brick wall. I have to have it cut back every year. Your only problem will be containing it but it will cover the ground and look beautiful.

    Ivy is pretty. I planted some years ago. You do have to be careful as it does spread and you don't want it attaching to a house too much. I like lamium as a ground cover, but that one might like shade. Hostas are good too. I've got lots of those in my garden. Sweet william is pretty, hens & chickens are neat if you have a rock garden. My ex's mother has a pretty rock garden with those all over the place. I'm trying to remember the names of some of the plants I've got. I had many years where I gardened and planted everything under the sun. I've kind of hit a I'm tired of it point three years ago and I don't do it much anymore.
