Getting rid of lawn on a slope
May 6, 2013 in Design Dilemma
I have a backyard covered in lawn, difficult to maintain! I therefore would like to cover up the lawn and create a natural landscape with heather, lavender and other wind-and-salt-resistant plants. What is the fastest way to cover the lawn? I am familiar with the organic approach of layering (manure + cardboard + soil + mulch), for having done it successfully before in a flat garden. I am however concerned in this instance that the layers would slide down the slope. Does anyone have advice please?
