The Q&A Archives: Leveling soil

Question: Hello I have a house on a hill and would like to level my backyard. What would you recommend I do to prevent the lawn from slipping downwards. thanks

Answer: The best erosion control is planting things with fibrous root systems. Depending upon the degree of the slope, a healthy lawn may be all you need. Or, you might need to install a concrete retaining wall or terrace the yard. A professional landscaper can offer on site advice. Best wishes with your landscape!
