Native Plants


In an area characterized by dramatic hills, short, manicured grass does little to prevent soil erosion. A heavy June thunderstorm can easily wash away thousands of dollars of soil and seeds from a hillside lawn, new or established.

Terraces are a natural landscaping choice for sloped yards. Built into the hillside, they provide planting space for native plants that minimize storm water runoff when properly designed and seeded. They’re also a practical place for growing vegetables or fruit trees, and can add drama and beauty to a yard.
