Sloped Mediterranean Front Yard
Tropical yards, Southwest landscaping, Mediterranean yards, or Japanese gardens. Regardless of design style, how to landscape a slope or hillside generally follows the same set of rules. Some hardscapes, plants, and elements will be different but for the most part, their role in preserving the slope, topsoil, and plants will be the same.
One example is in using retaining walls. While the materials may be different in color and composition, how to build retaining walls from concrete blocks is basically the same on most sloped front yards and properties. And of course, as with this Mediterranean front yard, ground covers and garden plants will change according to design style a geographic location but their role in erosion control will basically be the same.
