Steep Hill Landscaping – Things You Ought to Know

Beautiful landscaping is always praiseworthy as it is an indispensable part of the interior and outdoor decoration of a housing complex. Most people show their eagerness to decorate the adjoining garden in the perfect way. Although, for those residing in hilly regions may find it a bit difficult to landscape the garden, proper arrangement/availability of tools and equipments makes it extremely easy and convenient to decorate the garden of a house on the top of the hills. If a house is situated at the foot of the hills and a man desires that his adjacent backyard of the house be as beautiful as the natural garden/forest, he must follow some basic points.

While starting the hillside landscaping project, one should check whether the walling system is in place. Basically, during rainy seasons, rain and landslide can occur in the hilly region and the rain water rolling down the slopes would dash against the house. Therefore weak walls should be reinforced and made strong. The way to the hill should be well maintained and the low height steps or slopes should be constructed or rebuilt to ensure safety and prevention from the erosion of soil.

Now the next step starts with the tree plantation. Proper care is required while planting trees on the terrace of the house and surrounding area. Junipers are really good to see and ideal for the decoration of landscape of the house on hillsides. Japanese Pachysandra plants also provide the maximum coverage to the steep steps in a way to scale up the hill. However, if the slopes or steps are low in height, one can start planting creepers like Phlox trees which act as ground coverage. Sun rays would not directly fall on the slopes, and they would be cool, thus increasing the longevity. Also, people would feel comfortable while climbing the hills.
