    Yes, please post some photos that we can see larger. Are you asking this question because of the slope? How much sun does that area get?

    Sorry! This is our first house & I don't have much idea about the lawn care, & i dont have much time ,so i was thinking of putting juniper plant. But somebody suggested me to put the artificial grass so then i will not have to worry at all. Now iam confused. specially our front yard is steep. I contacted one or two lawn maintance but he said to put juniper it will cost me around $2000,and i don't know about grass charges .any suggestions please. Iam posting few more pictures of my front yard. Sorry Iam trying to click add photo or video it's not doing anything .

    Junipers are a natural choice for a slope like that but are not the only option, nor does the slope need to be all one thing. How much sun does it get? Another consideration is that you're going to have to get water to that area. Artificial turf is pretty pricey. If you're looking to cut costs, you can start with smaller plants, which will get established more easily and will generally catch up to the bigger ones in a season or two.

    If it were me, I think anything but artificail grass would be the way to go. DIY makes it look so great and easy but there is alot of expense and upkeep to that, on top of the fact that it really doesn['t look that great after awhile, especailly not in a big area. I would go for ground cover, drought tolerant such as sedums. They look good all year long and never need watering..atleast not here in MI. But they are an easy care ground cover, and a whole lot cheaper and prettier than artificial turf.

    Hedgerose, I prefer plants that are easy to care for, don't require much water, prevent erosion and look good all year long without trimming. Google Monkey Grass. Try mixing monkey grass with different foliage types and colors for variation. Plant it along walkways, gardens, and flower beds.
