where to go for ideas in creating a rock garden on a slope immediately behind an old cape cod style house 1790 - the hill/slope is the entire back yard, the hill has never been touched.I've done rock gardens before but not on this scale, need photos. tis

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Annie Thornton added this to Houzz Tour: Cabin Studios in the Landscape
For a project with such extensive architectural and structural components, the natural landscape and terrain of the site played a remarkably significant role. The prominence of the green roofs and the insertion of the buildings into the landscape emphasize that in this design, the landscape remains the focus. The thoughtful and seemingly understated execution on both landscape and architecture leaves Feldman content with the “integrated, respectful, subservient and quiet” architecture of the cabins, and Hook hoping that with each trip, visitors to the site will “walk away satiated with nature’s beauty and their place within it.” Photography by Joe FletcherGeneral Contractor: JP Builders, Inc.More:Houzz Tour: Simple Luxury at a Swedish RetreatDirt Optional: Amazing Air Plants for Wall or Tree9 Cooling Rooftop Gardens

These two cabins were designed to work with the slope of a wooded Mill Valley, California, site.
