Help landscaping a steep hill Sign In/Join 
I am looking for some help on what to plant at the top of a steep hill to add privacy to the top level and prevent erosion.

Our back yard basically has a flat top plain and then a steep drop off. We added English Ivy on the hill but are looking to plant something at the very top of the hill.

Any suggestions?!

Local nursery may be your best resource for the local plants that can help the most.

No way anyone here can really help without knowing either your general location, zip code or planting zone, as metwo asked.

Personally I would sure consider some terracing options with the concrete interlocking blocks. This would be more plant friendly and also add value to your landscape.
