native shrubs erosion control #869814

Asked May 23, 2024, 3:41 PM EDT

I live in a t.h. complex adjacent to a wetland pond. By Bloomington city standards, we need to plant native species. Banks of pond are in shady and partial sun. *Slope and shoreline erosion are problems that we need to address.* Can you please offer ideas for shade, partial sun and erosion control native species shrubs? thank you
