What about getting some wildflower seeds and spreading it across the whole area?

If you get rid of all of the vegetation it will turn to mud and erode away. Its much better to have something there so the roots bind everything together

Hardy geraniums are foolproof and maintenance-free. Will spread to cover the slope. G. macrorrhizum makes dense groundcover, pink or white flowers.

Is it sunny or shaded?

Vinca minor and Bugle (Ajuga) are good ground cover for shade.

We have a couple of slopes in our new garden and I’m going with wild flowers and bulbs. No maintenance (or at least, very little) and lots of beautiful stuff for most of the yearsmile
