Hello all. We have recently had a new driveway (not finished yet) and have now three large sloping areas to plant. We don't want any more grass areas and would like to have a mixture of trees and ground cover plants. The one area is quite steep and is next to woodland. It does get some afternoon/evening sun, but is mostly shade. The other two areas have sun from mid morning onwards. Some ideas I have is to to plant some spruce or pine trees on the steeper slope and maybe go for cotoneaster or vinca as ground cover mixed with faster growing shrubs on the other slopes. I want to keep the cost down but also have something that will grow quite quickly. Any help will be appreciated .
