The Q&A Archives: Rocky slopes

Question: We live on top of a hill. We put in an above ground pool so now behind the pool we have a steep slope going up with mostly rocks. What do I do to fix tis problem?

Answer: You weren't very specific about the problem. Do you want to plant something on the slope or do you want to terrace the slope? If you want to terrace it, you may need to get advice from your county about whether or not you can safely change the slope. I'm afraid that kind of advice is well beyond our expertise, especially when we cannot see the area or know how steep the slope is. Check with your county building department for guidance. Good luck with your landscape.
