PHOTOS OF SPREADING JUNIPERS

 

An old favorite for covering slopes and steep banks are spreading junipers. These types of Junipers are known for their fast growth, adaptation to poor soil, and low maintenance requirements. These evergreen plants are usually spaced three to four feet apart, with every other row being staggered for even cover. Closer spacing requires more plants but provides faster cover of a planting area.

Weed control is extremely important during the first few years, while the junipers are filling-in and covering the slope. Eventually, the plants will completely cover the planting area, reducing the requirements for annual mulching and weed control.
