My mom lives in Baltimore and has a steep (35-40degree?) hill about 50feet by 15 feet that gopes from her lawn down to the driveway. I am interested in having groundcover placed there--there had been something before but had been neglected and was weedy so we want to start over. The opposite side of the driveway has a nice growth of combined English Ivy and Pachysandra. I would like to do this on the other side as well. Someone she may hire wanted to plant "flowering plants" there instead. It is full sun. Any reason not to use the Pachysandra/Ivy combo? Any other better suggestions--as low maintenance (after it takes hold) as possible.
