Join me, Chloe, as I walk you through my backyard garden – let me inspire you with some ideas on how to garden on a slope. Don’t let a sloping garden hold you back – there are many many ways you can still have a beautiful and productive garden.
We moved into this property 6 years ago – at the time there wasn’t a single plant in the garden – apart from some big gum trees. But during the past 6 years we’ve slowly transformed the space into various “rooms” and spaces we use daily. The “very backyard” section was our most recent creation and account for about a quarter of our overall house block.
To tackle the 33% sloping backyard we used a very clever product called ‘Straightcurve Edging’ – it’s a rusted steel edging that can be bent into any shape. So we’ve used it to create terrace style steps up to a small but lush green lawn.
