I have a front yard which is has a steep slope on the front. It is too steep to comfortably mow with a lawnmower. I am looking for advice of what to do with it. The area is about 40ft long and 30ft deep- 1,200 sq ft.
I was planning on just dumping 3" of mulch over it all and then add plants at a later date when I have more money. With that being said is mulch a good option? If so, can I just dump it over the existing grass/ weeds? I have heard bad things about landscape fabric and tried spraying the area with grass killer (41% glyphosphate) with not much luck. Even if I do kill the grass, I am sure it will just grow back. Not sure how to get rid of the current grass.
Another option someone told me was to dump top soil over it all and sprinkle wild flower seeds over it all. I am Just looking for a budget friendly and low maintenance solution which will add curb appeal to my house.
I have a big birthday party at my house for my daughter in a couple of weeks and was hoping to get something done before then.
