5. Problem Solvers for Site Challenges If your site comes with existing challenges — such as a steep slope or drainage issues — cheap, cobbled-together solutions will rarely solve the problems and can lead to larger issues (and bigger expenses) down the line. It’s wise to invest in the right solution upfront.Adding retaining walls to this sloped Denver front yard solved an awkward grade change and enhances the home’s curb appeal. Dustin Farmer of Stems Garden Design + Maintenance, who designed the garden, used the retaining walls to showcase a selection of low-water and native plants.

Clean Hardscape Adds Architectural StructureAfter: Asymmetrical terraced planters filled with native plants and low-maintenance grasses now fill the front yard, providing the home with more privacy, beauty and usability. Farmer worked with Lauren Bloom of Bloom Concrete & Landscape, who demolished and then built the garden, including the paving, decking and board-formed concrete retaining walls. A new poured-in-place concrete path takes a jog, creating an opening to showcase the new 8-by-12-foot Cor-Ten steel raised bed fabricated and installed by Landwise Colorado.From the street, the Cor-Ten planter blends in with the rest of the terraced design, but it offers something unexpected: Its top edge slopes down toward the house. “I wanted to bring an element of surprise,” Farmer says. By sloping the planter toward the home, the homeowners get to enjoy a private, green view from inside, and those on the street can admire the Cor-Ten planter.

Love the low maintenance and the raised beds.

In this photo I really like the mix of materials - black, gray, and wood. I think the planter may be a partially rusted steel? I also like how the stairs are visually offset from the path to the front door, forcing you to meander through the garden on your way there. Finally, the use of stones that "float" on a bed of black gravel is really nice.
