Hi Gerry, I have a steep bank all around the back of our house. I have planted a beech hedge on top of the bank and am now looking for suitable plants or creepers to sow on top that might grow down to screen off the bank and prevent weeds/grasses from taking hold or alternatively something to sow at the bottom that may climb up. The bank is 8 to 10 feed high so apart from about a foot of topsoil on the top most of the rest of the depth is gravelly. Can you recommend something suitable and possibly fast growing. Thanks.
In fact, your beech hedge might be better at house level … all it will do on top of the bank is increase its height and create greater emphasis on the bank.
