If you have an erosion problem, but can’t afford a retaining wall, Asiatic Jasmine may be the answer to your prayers.
Asiatic Jasmine is a low growing, compact plant that works wonders on hill sides. Once established it will hold the soil and slow the water coming off of the slope.
It is low maintenance and does a good job of choking out weeds. It’s not only good for slopes, but really any bed area that you want coverage and low maintenance.
Each plant will grow about 3 feet wide and won’t get about 18″ tall if never trimmed.
You can see the perfect application of it in the video posted below.
I would not recommend substituting other types of Jasmine for this type of application, as they generally are thinner and like to climb.
So if you have an erosion problem in your landscape or want a low maintenance bed, consider Asiatic Jasmine for your next project. Feel free to give us a call if you have any questions about it.
