    Hi there - what is the name of the plant when you're looking at the picture it's third from the left along the bottom? Beside the morning light?

    The slope here runs from approx. 4' to about 6' high. the width from the the top of the slope (at the porch) to the bottom of the slope runs approx. 12 feet to 20 feet. How well this works really depends upon the site - drainage, access, width the slope can run, size of the boulders, type of plants as well as the type of material the ground/ slope consists of. Lots of variables, I hope that helps.

Strategically place boulders. Well-placed boulders can stabilize the grade as well as create microclimates for a variety of plants. By deliberately placing large boulders parallel to the top of the bed, you can create water-retentive planting pockets for moisture-loving plants. By placing smaller boulders perpendicular to the top of the bed, you can create well-draining areas for those plants that require those conditions. Custom soil mixes that retain or release water can further aid you in the creation of a unique mixed bed.
