Sloped Garden Design

A sloped garden can scare some people however it can create greater interest than a level one. So many opportunities are available when creating a sloped garden design; exciting features such as steps, terracing, dynamic water features, or even rock outcrops can be incorporated into such a garden.

When designing and creating such gardens careful attention should be paid to how steep the garden is. In smaller gardens the creation of gentle changes in levels are easier to stabilize than steep banks. Where a garden has a steep bank, it is possibly best to build retaining walls which can be softened with planting.
