Dealing with hills in a landscape design can often present unique problems and situations that many people are not ready to overcome at first glance. With a little thought, some careful consideration, and the proper planning hills can actually offer you some great opportunities for truly making your yard look fantastic. There is one item that must be considered before all others when dealing with hills, and that is size of the hill.
The size of your hill or hills will determine what you can and cannot do. If the hill is particularly large, then you will be able to do larger scale projects.

Here are a few methods that you can be used to begin dealing with the hills you have around your home.
