Make a Dynamic Statement With Multilevel Gardening

Sloping sites can create beautiful spaces full of movement and drama. Working a plan around the site's natural slope allows for a more organic effect, while terraces offer structure and shape for formal and contemporary designs.

Gentle Slopes

Gentle changes of level in a garden offer visual interest and depth to the design. For practical purposes, gardens with only a slight incline can be treated as a flat site. However, if completely even areas are needed, for example to accommodate a table and chairs, you must level the ground and carefully consider the route between changing elevations.

Use shallow steps to bridge a small pond and provide an easy route up to the seating area beyond.
