I have an old house with poor soil and a lot of shade in back. I have some bare areas where it is on a small slope and is shaded (bright, not heavy shade.) I wonder if ivy would do to try to fill in so it's not just bare ground?
I think the soil is bare because there is nothing growing there except shrubs and no plants that would creep like crab grass, so nothing grows on the small slope. I'm wondering if I plant ivy at the top of the slope if it will grow downward to fill it in.
