how to plant wild strawberries and cinquefoil on riverbank

Zone Northeast Ohio | carleyvitale added on May 26, 2015 | Answered

I have an overgrown riverbank and would like to replace the existing weed growth with wild strawberries and cinquefoil. How would I go about this? Can I weed kill, then pull the existing....then plant? How do I space the two plants?

I would recommend contacting your local county extension office and verify that these plants can be introduced in your area.
I would also caution use of herbicides to kill existing plant life near a water source.
Here are links to the plants you listed.
