How do you tackle sloping gardens like these?
With severe garden slopes, you basically have 3 options:
- Live with the slope
- Terrace it (quickly or slowly)
- The compromise
A garden slope you can live with
The effectiveness of this will, of course, depend on the severity of the slope but if you simply don’t have the funds to throw at sorting out levels your best option is to make the most of it.
Free-flowing curved shaped borders will cope much better with slopes and undulations than any other design shapes – avoid straight lines at all costs, especially if your garden slopes from side to side as well as up and down.
