any alternatives to mulch or rocks for sloped landscaping??Posted by swankgirl at September 24. 2007
after spending all day yesterday shoveling up old mulch, ivy, weeds, & boulders from my front yard, i now have a clean slate to fill. does anyone have any hip ideas for land cover besides absolute black mulch, or piling up river rocks? my boyfriend commented that someone should sell old tire shavings as mulch, as a way to recycle rubber and have a yard that doesn't look like everyone elses. i know that sounds extreme, but you get my point...... appreciate any input, as i am a first-time homeowner!!

Ditto on the tire mulch. We have a showroom in our city...you can get it in colors as vivid as azure blue...and red. The regular colors black, brown, grey etc. Fine minched and coarsely ground lumps also.
I am sorry that I don't have a name or direction in which to send you...but they make this sack filled with soil and seed. You place the sack similar to a sand bag out and water it...and in no time you have a big bumpy shaped thing covered in grass. I have no idea how they expect you to maintain it. But it looks so awesome from a distance used in a large quantity, as there is sooo much texture. In your case this might work as a berm of sorts and lessen soil erosion.
