In the North East, looking for some curb appeal help. The lower yard is on a gradient.. It's hard to water although I do have some soaker hoses. Looking for plants and flowers but have not had much success in recent years. There are some bushes that i would love to rip out but need some vision first. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

JC, I assume you are selling your home, hence the "curb appeal." I'd suggest leaving the shrubs that are there and simply covering the area with a hardy ground cover such as English Ivy. Most home buyers don't want a high maintenance yard and those that do garden would prefer to put in the plants they want.
Good luck!

Yes there are many ground cover that would work too. Deep-rooted plants, such as prairie plants, hold their own on even the steepest slope. Ornamental grasses, ground cover roses and shrubs (including shrub roses with a sprawling growth habit) work well in hillside and slope planting. Native plants are nearly always an excellent choice.
