What to seed hill with


Behind my backyard is a hill. Once a year the county is out to do brush clearance. The weeds block the view and are ugly. There must be something that I can throw out there, over seed it and get some ground cover growing. Something that can grow fast, last forever, hardly need water, and be dirt cheap. Any thoughts?

Agree on the white dutch clover. Low growing, puts nitrogen in the soil as it grows, takes over when allowed to thicken.

Right, certain grasses do, as long as it is indigenous to the area, weather conditions and the soil type.

Re: What to seed hill with


Any issues with planting clover where it is not indigenous and it becoming invasive?
