Vegetable Garden On a Hill
Problems can be a part of a solution. After foundational work altered this home’s backyard, space was made for a fresh design - a levelled area for a vegetable garden, new pathways to better access a workshop on the side of the house, and native perennials to attract beneficial insects like butterflies. The landscape was once limited by slope and water movement. Now details like the dry laid stone wall that allows water to pass through it rather than build up behind it - not only protect the hillside - but also provide texture and beauty. What could have been a muddy mess is a source for food, flowers, and stabilization.
