My mother has a large slopping garden, sloping in two directions, with a wall holding the earth up on one side with a path along the side of the house on the other. It was very dangerous to mow as you and the mower could easily fall off the wall as the entire lawn slopes towards it. My father broke his neck falling off of it. So my mother is having the wall raised and the soil moved from the lowest part of the slope to the upper part, so it is level. She is then having very wide steps coming down, to the lower paved area by the house. She was however wondering what to do with the sloping area next to the steps. I suggest a waterfall/ stream with a pond at the bottom and my father said he wanted a rockery, which could sit either side of the stream. As anyone any other idea or has pictures to give us some inspiration?
