If you want to start hillside landscaping, think of your safety first 😕
What would you do if your hill is fairly steep? I mean if it is very hard to walk up it because of the angle. You would want to outtask the job right?

Have professionals do the hillside landscaping then and save yourself from a hassle.

However, if the hill is simply an area of your yard that you just wanted to landscape, but have not had any real ideas for it? Just do the hillside landscaping yourself. You should start with a survey of the land itself and its location.

For example, if the hillside is in the front of your home, you can create an ornate landscaping design. First of all, evaluate the soil itself – is it arid? If so, be sure to purchase nutrient-rich soil before you begin. Next, you need to think about the plants that you would like to incorporate in the hillside landscaping design.

The best idea is to forgo plants and plant bushes instead. The reason for this is that bushes are hardy in many different kinds of weather and they only require minimal pruning during certain times of the year. The kinds of bushes that you should consider for the hillside landscaping project should ideally be ones that grow horizontally instead of vertically.

Square Shape In LandscapingHave you selected the kinds of bushes that you want? I will take it positive so the next step will be to figure out the kind of pattern that you want them in. And for this, you will not only have to calculate the quantity of bushes you will need, but also the area that you want to dig out for the bushes.

Popular shape that many people choose is the square shape, however yours can be any shape you want – you are the owner here. :) Hehe…

Now with design. Bushes can be placed in a linear pattern and equally spaced so that they form the inside of the square like a checkerboard. Or, you could place the bushes in a spiral pattern. You should discuss design ideas with a professional landscaper if you would like a more ornate pattern.

More information on hillside landscaping can be found at your local bookstore, in various gardening magazines. Ask for assistance at your local gardening center too and you are sure to find the right hillside landscaping ideas doing the proper research.

😉 Good luck!
