Sloped yards can be difficult to design and maintain. Designing and building a landscape in a sloped yard needs careful planning and plant selection. Fortunately, many plants are easy to grow on slopes. The plants you choose for sloped landscapes depend on your aesthetic preferences as well as the requirements of the front yard. Since these plants have deep roots, they help control soil erosion and maintain soil grip. At Liaison Landscapes, our landscaping designers prefer particular plants for sloped yards that last longer and grip the soil better. Scroll down to find the best plants to grow on a sloped landscape:
Burning bush has a natural burst of colors particularly during fall. They can grow well in all types of soil and their deep roots provide a firm grip on the soil to prevent erosion. Burning bush not only improves the visual appeal of a sloped yard, but it is also easy to maintain.
Cypress plants are popular for their low-maintenance and firm grip, they can stand tall and straight on any inclined surface and add a beautiful texture to slopes. Cypress plants are tough and can survive harsh weather. They thrive in both partial shades and exposure to sunlight. You can trim and tweak cypress plants to craft creative topiaries and boost your front yard’s visual appeal.
Hellebores are tough and enduring plants that can bloom in early springs, or sometimes during late winters. Hellebore flowers have a beautiful spotted pattern and the hybrid species come in a variety of patterns and hues. Hellebore plants are specifically used by many landscaping contractors for sloped yards.
Rose shrubs are also tough plants that survive in any weather extremities. No matter which variety you are using, roses can grip the soil firmly and thrive all year without much maintenance. Landscaping designers prefer using shrub roses, rockrose, groundcover roses, miniature roses, and hybrid tea roses.
