Next Project...

The slope is the next project.  Here it is, swinging the gaze from left to right, from south to north.  The slope faces east.   It is about 90 feet long and 18 feet wide.  The grade of the slope is...steep.

It presents a potentially frieze-like view from the windows on the west side of the house.  Lots of possibilities.  The citrus and avocado trees must stay, but everything else can be moved, maybe.  Those Yuccas would be nasty to move, the Agonis isn't doing that well, and the Agave is getting close to blooming size, so it won't be there much longer.  And maybe the roses should stay, because they are beautiful.  That's a good reason, isn't it?

  1. Hi Hoover Boo, the dog (hehe). I kind of always pity plants which are moved! They experience lots of stress. Is it not usual in your climate to use grass covers to control the soil erosion in those slopes? I thought it is nicer instead of much, although of course i am familiar only with our climate.

    1. Hi Andrea! There was a ground cover that we did not like--until I start re-planting, the mulch controls weeds and makes it look a little neater, or so I hope!

  2. Wow, look at all of that planting space! (drool)

    Have you tried any photo stitching software? Perfect for creating wide panoramic shots of areas like this. :-)

    1. Yes, space! I need to try some "panorama", yes. Another thing I haven't managed to get to yet...
