Beautiful solution. What are the grasses? Will they grow in Northeast - We have a steep slope that ends in a lawn that leads down to a waterfront area edged in rosa rugosa. We need to plant something that will hold the bank, tolerate hot full summer sun, strong cold winds in winter and salt spray.

For gentle slopes like this, I adore native grass meadows.
Benjamin Vogt / Monarch Gardens added this to Why Aggressive Plants Might Actually Be Your Friends
Why Plant Aggressive Natives1. The tough spot. Whether the area floods and then dries out like a brick, or is simply a dry brick all of the time while in full shade to boot, there’s nothing more annoying than trying to find the right plant for a difficult place in the landscape. You could go through years of trial and error — well, mostly error. If you have a large area, it can get expensive, so why not let the plants colonize? A perfect place for a supercharged plant is a hillside, to prevent erosion.
