Default Looking for landscaping recommendation.

I have bought a new house with a rather steep hill in the backyard. I need landscaping done for the backyard to get around the hill. Does anyone have any experience with the steep hills and can anyone refer me to landscaping websites with tips and design ideas?

If I were you, I will put a Koi pond with waterfall features. There is special requirements for Koi ponds and you need to hire professionals for the landscaping project. Post your project on projectground.com where you can evaluate the submitted bids and designs from various local landscaping service providers.

For a severe slope, look into segmental retaining walls (Anchor Wall Systems, Allan Block, Keystone, Versalok and others). A good DIY project
