Landscape Solution for A Sloped Backyard

The homeowners expressed great pleasure with the transformation of their sloped backyard. Plant selection was based on a low profile to prevent blocking their view of the gorge below the slope. Abundant color was added with summer blooming shrubs and perennials that brighten up the yard when entertaining or relaxing. Our client’s residence overlooks a beautiful gorge and their backyard had a slope needing to be retained. Block walls were impractical and cost prohibitive. We designed stairs, boulders and small curved walls to break up the slope yet still retain the soil. Part of the upper lawn was removed to install a slate patio so the view into the gorge could be enjoyed from the backyard.
