Ask a Pro Q&A: Sloped Yard Solution

Welcome to another installment of Ask a Pro! Today we are talking to Dream Team member and outdoor design expert Carson Arthur! Let’s see what he has to say about adding a terrace to a sloped backyard!


Q: How would you terrace a downsloped back yard?

-Abigail M.

A: It all comes down to your budget!  They best way to create a terraced slope is to use a series of retaining walls to add level spaces down the slope for plants and shrubs.  Of course this is the most expensive! If you are on a budget, collect large stones to create planting pockets behind them, working your way down the hill.
