We have a bank next to our driveway that is in dire need of work but we are at a loss as to what to do to make it attractive. It is very dry and nothing seems to want to grow there except blue rug plants which are not at all attractive. Do you have any suggestions as to what to do to make it attractive. It is what people see when they drive up our driveway. We live in the mountains of Western North Carolina.
I would like to have a landscaper come and look at it but my husband is reluctant to spend thousands of dollars if we can do something ourselves.
