How to landscape a steep hillside

by: 
Michael Glassman and Houzz

In 2013, I made this video with Houzz about landscaping the steep front yard of my clients, Beth and Larry Goldberg.  They had a real challenge on their hands after they purchased this hillside home. Narrated mostly by Beth and Larry, we tell the story of how good, problem-solving landscape design addressed their slope and parking problems using rusted iron retaining walls filled with interesting drought tolerant plants and a parking bay.  In solving the site's unique problems and listening to Beth and Larry's aesthetic sense and wish list, we created a cohesive, functional and beautiful front yard.
