Bought this home 19 years ago. Front hillside was way too steep to mow. Now I have tons of daylilies growing on it, along with many other perennials to keep it blooming all summer into fall. A never ending project, but that's the way a garden is!
If I could figure out how to get photos on here, I would do so. The area is about 100 feet long, 7-9 feet top to bottom (a guess) and about 45 degree slope at least. I still occasionally lose my footing and fall Rolling on the floor laughing Have to keep neighborhood entertained! Maybe they think I drink while gardening?! Smiling
