An arid bank
Hi. My front garden is small, but was very sloped, with bushes forming a boundary along the top between us and next door. I decided to flatten the front half and use all the soil to create a bank behind some old sleepers, leaving the bushes in situ. It looks really good but the soil on the surface is very dry and bedding plants are struggling to survive. I was wondering if drought resistant ground cover plants may be the way to go and hope that you can suggest some. The bank gets morning sun, but is is shade for much of the rest of the day.
