I'm assuming you'll amend or add topsoil, and it really depends on your location. We planted Rosemary officinalis 'Prostratus' and Acacia redolens as slope stabilizers in this project.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Bill Marken added this to Great Design Plant: Coast Live Oak
Because of their size and untidiness (dropping leaves, catkins, acorns), live oaks are best at the edge of property, in a somewhat natural section. Don't plant lawn or ground covers under existing old trees; this encourages root diseases. It’s also better not even to pave the soil surface. Trees that you plant generally withstand garden watering better; try to avoid summer watering. Mulch, gravel or stones undeneath, as shown here, is healthier and looks more natural.
