We recently bought a home with a pretty steep hillside backyard. How do you terrace to make usable planting areas? The base area is planted with aptenia which I plan to leave in to control erosion, but most of the rest of the hill is just weeds.

Terracing a hillside is an excellent way to slow or stop soil erosion and provide planting space. I found a publication that explains in detail how to go about terracing: http://www.nrcs.usda.gov/featu...

Hope you find it helpful. Good luck with your project!
