idea for hillside landscaping
I've got a similar steep hillside. I decided to terrace the hill to make usable planting areas. Instead of using expensive retaining wall blocks, I dug up the rocks in the soil, and placed them in homemade cages, gabion boxes, with wire from home depot. Two pics attached. in one, the level areas are fill with colored decorative rock and a few succulents. In another, a long garden bed 3 feet high and 2 feet wide. It is a lot of work, but my wife and I are really enjoying eating swiss chard, Kale, yellow squash, etc. that we planted ourselves.
