Side yard fruit and vegetable garden with steel planters.
How high is it from the top to the bottom of the slope?
Hi. I'm trying to determine how high the drop off (slope) is and how far out you had to go from the top to the bottom...I guess like height and width?
Sloped yard design perfect for redo on hill.
Wonderful way to use a slope for landscaping the yard....
Steel planters built into planted slope
happy growing on slopes as in level beds, so construct flowerbeds that rise up from a path, creating a green, enveloping corridor. Small steps cut into the bank will give you access for weeding and pruning.
2. Build a banked border. Most plants are just as happy growing on slopes as in level beds
