He was sitting at the mouth of the stormdrain, looking down a scrubgrass slope at the Cape Fear River and the bridge that spanned it.

    "Scrubgrass" refers to some coarse grass that wasn't cultivated. Instead, that grass is likely some sort of native species that grows near the Cape Fear River.

    Scrubgrass isn't in the dictionary (at least not in WRD), but if you look up scrub instead, and mentally insert the words "or grass" after "shrubs" in the relevant definitions, you will get the general idea.
    Also, Google Images is your friend.
