Urban and Rural Terraced Gardens are commonplace in Scotland and many clients consider their sloping or terraced gardens to be a bit of a challenge, an unusable or difficult space.
However; in fact, they offer the opportunity to create many features on different levels, introduce dramatic steps, add focal point features and layers of planting which can be viewed from the house. So rather than thinking of it as a problem site think of the opportunities your sloping garden offers to make your garden exciting and vibrant.
There’s also something alluring about terraced gardens which draw you up or down to the next level and the promise of either a spectacular view or more garden to explore. Don’t write off your garden just because it slopes – it’s an opportunity to take an adventurous journey, grab a cup of tea and have a wander.
