Hills Are For Heroes

ktconst(6a)May 14, 2011

I am new to this web. I have been spending the last two growing seasons transforming our back yard hill into a place that we can use and enjoy instead of just dreading it as a mowing challenge. A yard is a terrible thing to waste. I am a carpenter but, by no means, a landscape designer. Please see what you think of my efforts. I have done a few more things this spring. A yard, like a house, is a place that requires your attention. I am looking forward to doing more this year.

Really cute yard. THe hill is not a huge incline in your yard and you can get away with really low retaining walls. I have 45 degree at least...arghhhh...
