A hillside backyard with naturalistic and sustainable planting

Cradled in the folds of an undulating landscape, the intimate and sustainable hillside planting of this gorgeous backyard was impressed by the untamed wild past the garden’s shelter-belt of beech hedging and experienced trees.

The planting incorporates mounds and drifts of perennial bouquets, grasses and shrubs in heightened tones of nature’s more muted palette. This naturalistic planting style replaced the formerly unimaginative slope of unmown grass, and illustrates the options of sloping backyard ideas.
