    If you don't want to have to mow it you can try planting sedum or ivy.

    Terrace it with those beautiful terracotta blocks, start at the bottom, work up.
    Draw it on paper then you will have an idea how it will look. Put stairs right up the center. Plant flowers on each level. Enjoy!!!!!!

    Depending where you live, you can find ground covers that control erosion, thrive in dry conditions or tolerate foot traffic. Some are evergreen. Others lose their leaves in winter. Living on a hill in Southern California, I found landscaping to be an easy fix by using ground cover to blanket my hillside. I planted ice plant, that is drought-tolerant & requires little or no maintenance.

    Once again, depending where you live and the amount of sun the area has (morning/afternoon) shady, full sun.... you can try a rock garden with succulents spaced to grow inbetween......mulching with seasonal butterfly hummingbird and picking flower garden (allows for naturalization)......or carefree hosta, astibille, bleeding heart mix for those shady areas. All once planted/established take little work.

    My foundation had to be "built up" with soil (horrible stuff they used!) but out front was just a slight slope - I covered it with "indoor/outdoor carpet"! Yeah - basically astro-turf! No weeds. No runoff. No dirt. No mud. I park my car on it backed up to the porch to unload groceries etc. Some folks have laughed - others have smacked themselves in the forehead "why didn't I think of that?!"
