I think your hill is great. I like the rocks where they are. Ok the odd pieces of concrete can be moved. I like the odd star shaped ones and would probably use them for something. a woodland garden would be great in that spot. Are deer a problem? Looks like they might be. Would really like to see daffodils snowdrops and other spring bulbs coming up (no tulips) in that space, you cand add a bit every year in groups. In spring you will have sun because you dont have leaves on the trees, so the bulbs will come up. Then big leaved Hosta , some are fragrant with nice flowers. The newer varieties are slug resistant. Astible, even a rhodie or two nicely placed. The rocks are really nice. Look at some pictures of Rock Gardens it may help you appreciate them more. I’ll trade you my nasty eroding slope any day for your lovely woodland spot. ( wink)

You might need help from a professional landscaper in order to make sure that the soil will not erode and that it will also appear appealing. Putting plants, retaining walls, terraces are just few of the ways to landscape a hill. With that, we will give you some ideas on how some outdoor home scenes were done.

You might want to replace those timber stairs since they appear to be on their way out. Otherwise, I think your hill is pretty good as is. You could try some shade-tolerant woodland plants to liven things up (virginia bluebells, dutchmen’s breeches, blood root, etc.). Is that lovely water fresh or saltwater?

The Flint Hills landscape still comprises a large amount of unplowed prairie, similar to what the early settlers saw. Native grasses help keep this region prime grazing land. The enigmatic nature of a relatively un-featured, minimal landscape, both subtle and dramatic, presented a photographic challenge unlike that of any other place I had been.

Well, if your house is sitting on a hilly area, you do not have to worry because you can still do a lot for its landscape. Like what we said, try to seek help from a professional landscaper so you can be guided on the proper things to do. Also, you have to choose the right plants for your home and when your landscape is done, see to it that you will be able to maintain it well to preserve its beauty.

Inspiration for a contemporary hillside landscape in Other. — HouzzThink Mediterranean. Many plants of Mediterranean origin make perfect candidates for growing on sunny, dry, rocky slopes.

You might think that we were merely showing you the house here but no, check out the stairs on the sides, the position of the house and the modern landscape it used. For a modern design, minimal number of plants are used but more hardscapes are seen just like this one.
