Properly constructed, a hillside garden can be a delight of texture, form and color and provide year-round excitement. Dwarf conifers and other small woodies add structure and winter interest to such a garden without overwhelming the proportions. One of the nicest things about gardening on a hillside is that smaller plants are raised up and are easier to view.

I really appreciate your effort about making the landscapes.I got some useful stuff from your site. I work with landscape contractors to help them build lasting and profitable relationships with clients. Yes, it does present a few challenges, particularly with installation, but there are so many benefits. The second and third images are that of a slope in the De Cordova Sculpture Garden in Lincoln, Massachusetts. Tiers of rocks (or some other materials) set into the hillside at a slight upward angle that break the slope into terraces, gravel or hardwood mulch, and thick plantings will all work together to prevent a heavy rain from washing away your hard work. Where we’ll differ here from many rock gardens is that we have little interest in solely using true alpine plants. You can play homage to the color wheel, but I have found that if you go easy on extreme colors and are generous with white, most of the plants play well together.

The rock garden at Windsor Castle integrates well with the style of garden design used on the surrounding grounds.
Woodies defy the pull of gravity and stretch upwards while perennials hug the ground in mats, clump up in the protective spaces between rocks, or revel in the slopes and tumble freely. The sloped garden at de Cordova relates to the many outdoor sculptures that  are placed at various elevations of the parkland.
