Front Garden, July 2011

Formerly a problem front yard, I removed all the grass, enlarged the beds, and created a series of ponds and waterfalls on an "unusable" hill.

Like the steps, vegetation is maybe a little overgrown.

Over the years I’ve had a turbulent relationship with my own lot that entered my life with a 30-foot drop from back to front. The working relationship was so difficult that I didn’t even own a wheelbarrow until four years ago. When I purchased my home, there was no garden; in fact, there weren’t even any front steps. My solution was to carve a tiered water feature into the side of the hill and plant a garden around it. Let’s find a solution for your sloping yard that really works for your lifestyle, then discuss how to build a garden around it.
