Ground cover on a slope under a deck

(Question)

We are on the rouge valley with a steep slope and a large elevated deck. What gound cover would survive under the deck on the slope? Rain does get through the deck above, but there is permanent shade from the deck and trees. Currently the under deck area is dirt – no vegetation. I’m open to adding some light.

That is a tough spot you have but I believe we have the answers you are looking for.   Earlier this year we had a question very similar to yours that  answers your questions as well. I have added the link here below.
