What Houzz contributors are saying:

Cassy Aoyagi, FormLA Landscaping added this to Steeply Beautiful Slope Retention
Terracing small walls is a great strategy for shoring up slopes. It uses the drama of a steep slope, adding dimension and layering to an otherwise uninviting hillside. Staircases not only create stability and accessibility, they make the area more visually inviting.
