If you prefer to keep plantings out of your ditch altogether but dislike the look of a solid concrete ditch, you can simply cover it. Pour a concrete ditch liner, shaped to follow the contour and reinforced with rebar or chicken wire to help prevent cracking. Do not pave over the top few inches of turf on each side of the ditch however, or you may trade drainage problems for mowing. Those natural strips absorb excess water that overflows the concrete trench during peak rainfalls. Lay permeable covering such as wood decking or metal grating end to end over the ditch, to make a level surface that can double as a path. Easily trim any grass that protrudes from the grass strips along the edges with shears or a weed trimmer.
