surprise - just found out, if you want to move to the mountains ... you have to deal with a sloped lot in 99% of the cases
and since we have to present some landscaping plans, I am looking for websites with information about design and prefered plants.
this one tells a lot about plants Flowering Ground Covers | Plant Pictures | Ground Cover Plants
to me it looks like the Asheville area it great for gardening and in the beginning I would like to start with something fast growing, but colorful.
I like rock gardens a lot, also limber landscaping and will add some veggies in the back later.
we thought about terracing the front yard, but have to keep it low budget in the beginning. kids want a little waterfall
if you know about a nicely landscaped back or front yard in the area to look at - or you even designed on for your own place - or have a good website, please share it with me/us.
