When I first bought my house about half the backyard (of a 1/3 acre lot) was overgrown plants, ivy (particularly poison ivy) and what not. We’ve cleared this out all the way to the back which borders on a neighbors fence, so that looks pretty set. I’m in the process of clearing out the sides although there are no fences there. Notably there’s also a slight slope so I tend to get water from my neighbor’s yard (and my other neighbor from mine, I expect).
Any ideas for good things to plant/landscape along the property line that would do a good job absorbing as much water as possible?
