    Hi Mommymeade,
    I used quite a bit of Hydrangea 'Pinky Winky' (one of my favorites) and Hydrangea 'Annabelle', Miscanthus ' Morning Light' and Hosta' 'Francis Williams' on the slope and used Nepeta ' Blue Wonder' and Sedum 'Autumn Joy' adjacent to the steps.

Sallie Hill Design5. Keep Plantings Loose and Low-MaintenancePlanting a slope with a relaxed mix of hardy, low-maintenance plants rather than neatly lined-up specimens that require a lot of care is a great way to make a garden slope attractive. Plus, you won’t need to clamber around on it with the pruning sheers every weekend. How to Find the Right Native Plants for Your Yard

7. You live in an off-the-beaten-path location. Yard sale success often relies heavily on foot traffic, so if your home is hard to find or not on a main road, it may not be worth your while to hold a yard sale. If you choose to hold one anyway, be sure to advertise well in advance and place clear signage on the nearest main road as well as at the entrance to your home.8. Your homeowners association has restrictive rules about yard sales. If you belong to a homeowners association, it’s a good idea to check the guidelines before committing to a yard sale. Some HOAs limit the number of yard sales per year or have other restrictions about how and where you can display your items.

7. Recycled granite curbs. The stairway in front of this house in Newton, Massachusetts, is made from reclaimed granite slabs that were once used as the curbs for city streets. Turning to recycled materials has a lighter environmental impact and gives old stones new life in the landscape. A lush mix of hydrangea, hosta, catmint and ‘Autumn Joy’ stonecrop (Sedum ‘Autumn Joy’, zones 3 to 10) adds softness to the slope.

Terrain. Through a topographical survey of the site, a site surveyor can map out the contours of your property. There may be areas with steep slopes that are unsuitable or challenging for building. A good rule of thumb when looking at the terrain is that you want to minimize soil disturbance. Major regrading or cutting and filling of soil is not a sustainable practice, because it disrupts the biologically rich topsoil. Depending on the type of foundation you discuss with your building architect, there is likely a creative way to ground the building structure so that it touches lightly on the landscape with minimal disturbance.

Nice plantings although we may not have enough water for that look.
