If your front or backyard includes a hill or hillside space, you need a landscape design plan that allows for maximum beauty with minimal maintenance. In big cities, space is really a problem and those who enjoy a tiny courtyard are among the rare lucky ones. When sloped yards do not offer generous spaces, explore their altitude and transform any tiny lot into a marvelous gem!
Light stairs assure the access through the courtyard, while green shrubs enliven the space. In case the architecture of the house is minimalist, opt for several combinations of plants. As a matter of fact, having a coffee ‘on heights’, near a vegetal wall might be really refreshing. Besides, this vertical escape within your garden adds personality to the space. Plant greenery and flowers of various types and colors so to obtain a dynamic landscape.. In case you want to obtain an industrial look, mix steel with concrete. Also, add falling plants on various spots to make the yard feel animated and lively.
So the next time you approach a property with a sloping backyard think again about the heights and possibilities in front of you!
