Solution B: Create a shallow raised border following the slope and fill it with an abundance of seasonal color.
The greatest challenge with this particular border is preventing the soil either from spilling onto the driveway or being washed downhill. A simple cobblestone edging provides an easy boundary to plant against, while the dense planting creates a mat of roots to keep the soil in place.
Weeding sloping gardens is not an easy task, but one way to reduce this is simply by covering the soil with more plants. Clearly this homeowner understands that and has created a delightful cutting garden that provides months of color while also covering the soil in such a way as to reduce the ability for weeds to take hold.
