Hillside Landscaping

Always consider your particular landscape. Is it safe to mow? Are there any existing elements, such as boulders or trees, you will need to work around? Do you experience flooding? Will you need to hire a professional? By taking your time in the planning process, you’re more likely to be happy with the result.

Be sure to add a pathway or stairs. If you have room to add a courtyard or patio at the bottom of your hill, a walkway will be most beneficial for guests. Plus, a usable path will be a valuable investment as it will allow you to better care for and maintain your plants.

And speaking of plants, it’s a good idea to choose perennials. Hillside landscaping is a tough business, and you don’t want to have to re-landscape too often. Also, be careful to pick plants that will work with your soil and the amount of sun your hill receives.
