      A mortared stone wall can be sized to fit any landscape. Here a sturdy mortared wall holds in a natural slope that has been terraced to accommodate planting beds. Stone is an ideal choice for garden walls because it provides a sturdy, yet natural-looking building material.

      Landscaping slopes - Plant roots are very efficient at anchoring loose soil on a slope. So turn a tough hill into a beautiful planting by selecting easy-care groundcovers that root into the bank wherever their stems touch soil. The dense mats they create will reduce erosion and weeds.

    Japanese bloodgrass In place of grass, choose drought-tolerant plantings, which are more likely to prevent erosion. Shade, too, can be a necessary element in the fight against water loss: Plants lose a lot of moisture from evaporation on hot days. Grasses and artemisia offer beautiful foliage in this planted bed.

    Great plants for ground cover

    For the ditch? Ground cover plants such as Aubrieta are excellent for steep banks - they suppress weeds, help stabilise the soil and are low maintenance.

    Very smart! Rinse veggies right in the garden and then re-use the water on the plants. Plastic bucket and small laundry basket/colander from Dollar Tree would do nicely.

    beautiful solution to a sloping yard!!

    pretty path

    Daylilies and hostas! two hard to kill or in other words, easy to grow plants that make this bed look marvelous! And both plants multiply, too!

    love this bed....plants, colors, textures, etc.

    Hostas are a topnotch groundcover for shady areas. Plant them on a tough-to-mow hillside to create a lovely, carefree garden bed. If you have a steep slope that water runs down so quickly the soil can't absorb moisture, try breaking up the hill with rocks or other barriers. It will slow the flow of water.

    Garden Up: Give your favorite plants better view-blocking power by growing them in raised beds or berms. You will be surprised at how much more secluded your yard feels by mounding the soil enough to add a foot or two to your plants' height.
