Hillside Backyard Ideas Needed
October 20, 2013 in Design Dilemma
My whole back yard is going to waste. When I walk out of my back door it goes up. It's a huge space that is not being used because of the steep grade. Please help

You need a professional landscaper here. Since it is not a flat yard, you would most probably want a terraced yard. Look here on houzz for terraced landscaping. You will see ideas for this, which include retainer walls and all that comes with it. It will be a pricey project, but if you want to be able to use the yard, it will be worth it.

Design keeping all outdoor activity your kids love in mind and you can create a backyard that brings your family together for fun, active play.
Basketball , Trampolines, Badminton, Volleyball, Ping Pong, Hop Scotch , Chess, are a few out door games popular with kids.
And of course , you try to make sure your home is a fun place to be so the kids can stay close by and not have to venture off elsewhere to find a good time. Find ways to build fun right into their own backyards.
Whether it’s a casual gathering with friends or a party, you just need a few areas to guarantee some fun in the sun for your teens and their friends.You could add a hammock also. You can also make provisions for watching movies.
You can set aside two areas: one for cooking and a separate one for serving and eating.
