PHOTOS OF SPREADING JUNIPERS

 

An old favorite for covering slopes and steep banks is the spreading juniper. 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 of course, but provides faster groundcover of the planting area. Weed control is very 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 need for mulching and weed control.
