We know that is not always easy to design a sloped backyard landscaping. These are more difficult and complex to design than level ones. While designing a sloping backyard, one has to face several practical problems and those need to be solved before having a well planned design. The sloping backyard garden may require a level ground, such as patio, children’s play equipment, sheds, seats, greenhouse, swimming pools, ponds, pergolas, tennis courts, and so on. Usually three common ways are used to create terraces on sloping ground, cutting out, filling in and or a bit of both.
The situation becomes more complete when you have to design a sloping garden in a very small space for the terrace. And usually the design is based on cutting to the slope rather than charging anything. This is definitely ruled out the possibility of excavation work, and show that the efforts of a structural engineer is required to have an appropriate framework for the main retaining wall because it is very close to home. To protect the neighboring ground from excavation, the retaining wall stepped down on one side. While on the other side a different screen ensures that the gap between the retaining wall, and the fence allows planting on the slopes, projecting over the bottom of the garden, along with the front of the top paving. You can put a tub or pot planted with colorful flowering plants. As you have cut out the area from a slope, you must need some excavation of reasonable depth at the borders to make room for topsoil. If you are willing to plant shrubs, then the ideal depth should be 16 inches.
Sloped Backyard Landscaping Ideas
Sunny areas are usually preferred for herbaceous and annual flowers, whereas shrubs should be preferred for the shady areas. It is not a good idea to include any trees in this small garden as they may cause a shade over the entire garden. However, you can use some from of conifer trees at the corner places or for screening the eyesores. If you feel that the view of sloped backyard landscaping is not what you want, you can replace a tub or pot with an inner pouch that will hold a large evergreen conifer or bush. Because there is no grass in this garden, maintenance work will be easier. Top and bottom paving should have the same shape and style and decorated with pots and tubs containing colorful flowers. The main section also contained a tub and patio pots or growing bags.
