Ideas needed for sloping garden


By Jks_53

I need to make my sloping garden easy to maintain but it has lawns, a few flower borders and the added problem of a very strange shape. Any easy and low cost ideas of what I can do with it?



A useful plant for sloping gardens is the Vinca, both major and minor. It spreads and is colourful. Gravel beds are lovely instead of lawns. You can grow all sorts of great plants in them which self-seed once you've got them going - grasses too. They wouldn't need much maintenance, either. To help a bit more, instead of flowers, why don't you think about easy evergreen variegated shrubs?
I think a photo or two of your garden at the moment might help us to give you more ideas.
