Hillside Gardens -
This Bucks County garden was
completed in the spring of 2010
and features flagstone steps and
walkways that weave through
steeply sloped gardens.

The existing property consists of steep slopes which make access and mowing around the home very difficult. Dear Garden Associates installed planting beds to stabilize the slopes and for seasons of color. Stepping stone paths and stairs, with a mid-level landing, were added to provide access from the front of the home to the lower rear terrace. A low boulder wall along the rear of the home provides a level mowing strip while new planting beds with ornamental grasses screen utility lids below. As the original gardens neared completion, an additional area of plantings and stone walkways were installed to complete the overall connection around the rear of the home to the mid level deck.
