The Challenge of Hillside Landscaping

Home / BLOG / Landscaping Tips / The Challenge of Hillside Landscaping

If your property has a steep slope, it can absolutely be a challenge when landscaping. It’s possible that your home could be at a higher elevation with your land sloping down and away from it. Or in a different scenario, your land could be sloping toward your home, which means your home is at a low point. For this particular scenario it is vital that your landscape have proper drainage.

For both situations landscaping steep slopes or hillside landscaping takes a great amount of knowledge and creativity to design if you want beautiful aesthetics and proper function. The degree of the challenge really depends on how steep the slope is. It’s possible that a planting design alone will be a good option but other instances may call for terracing.
