Two ideas for a hillside property

The Content Of The Article:

The property looks a little sad, despite the terrace on the building and height differences. Eye-catcher is an old water house in the slope, whose entrance gives the garden a romantic flair. The lawns should now be better used and the slope together with the existing seat be visually connected to the terrace.

Suggestion 1: Colorful frame for the barbecue area

For more flower decoration and color lush perennial flowerbeds along the terrace and on the opposite slope. Blue, purple and yellow dominate these areas, complemented by the calm green of ornamental grasses. The patio bed frames the existing paved area in a curved shape, leaving a narrow path out of tread plates that leads through the discounts onto the lawn. The barbecue area, a circular paved area with a mobile fireplace and flexible tree trunk stools, hugs the slope. For the recess, the existing wall was extended s-shaped to the left towards the water house. Above the wall, the same plants are repeated as in the terrace garden. At the top, via a narrow staircase along the water house, there is a round, paved seat. To give it optical backing and privacy, the rear half is framed with tall wooden sticks, on which fresh green hops rise up. For the first flowers from May, the yellow sun bride - who would like to have it already colorful, can complement the bed with daffodils, tulips or grape hyacinths.

In June, the pale yellow girl's eye 'Moonbeam' opens its pearlescent stars. From July, yellow coneflower, white star cloud 'Snowbank', yellow gold-haired aster and little blue lurks 'Little Spire' will be starting to make a mighty splash in the summer of this year: creamy white rose, purple beach lilac, blue globe thistle and purple verbena stuff. In the midst of this flower spectacle, the green tufts of diamond grass, which will form silvery-white, very decorative spikes from September, look like a small visual haven of tranquility.

Footplates to the barbecue area

As a direct route to the barbecue area, a few round steps lead from the terrace through the perennial flowerbed. Its heyday has its peak in the summer months

Suggestion 2: Summer dream with fairy-tale roses

The old water house is adorned by a large shrub rose next to the existing ivy - this is how the historic building looks enchanted rather than powerful. The picturesque 'Eden Rose 85' bears lush, densely-filled flowers and reaches a height of two meters. Another shrub stands on the retaining wall behind the apple tree. Through targeted pruning the rose is a bit lower here. The garden also gets a romantic flair through the rose arbor on the small hill. The fragrant climbing roses 'Swan Lake' and 'Nahéma' (pink) are up there. On the slope in front of it, a small lavender bed is blooming, framed by a row of the ground cover rose 'Snowflake'. As a contrast to their white flowers grows in front of the stairs purple sage.

In order to bring together the slope and the terrace at the house, sage and ground cover rose are repeated in the terrace garden. They were combined with bluebells and stone quenelles. Lavender and bush vines 'Baby Barnsley' in pots are blooming on the terrace in summer, the latter until October. For spring blossoms you could plant pink tulips or white daffodils around the seat. In the meadow, following the apple blossom, Siberian irises provide a splash of color and then the red fruits of the summer apple 'Piros'.
