    Default Looking for landscaping recommendation.

    I have bought a new house with a rather steep hill in the backyard. I need landscaping done for the backyard to get around the hill. Does anyone have any experience with the steep hills and can anyone refer me to landscaping websites with tips and design ideas?

    how steep?

    On one side of my yard it is pretty steep down to a 3ft wide drainage ditch, I fixed it by getting some corn liquor before I started then by the end of the year I did not even need the corn liquor! Now I dont mow it but a couple of times a year when it really gets bad.

    you could plant juniper in there as ground cover then you would only need to trim it 1-2 times a year. There are some other plants that will work but I can not think of them right off hand.
    Just because I don't care doesn't mean I don't understand.
