Landscaping a steep hill in Northern CA
August 29, 2013 in Other
I would like to plant a steep hillside (45 degree slope) with natives that will not be a fire hazard and can provide color. If the plants spread naturally, all the better. Right now, I have planted a few madrone trees but need shrubs/bushes. There is a water source available but would like to not have to rely on this once the plants are established. Thank you.
Thank you for reporting this. Undo
The County Extension Office of your state university will have a list of plants that are native to your particular area. These plants should need little to no additional water once they are established. You might be able to find the information online. Learn which plants do best in sun and in shade.

Go to a local plant nursery (not national chain). The horticulturalist on staff will be able to answer all of your questions.
