A Steep Hillside Is Turned Into A Lush Landscape

Plant Combinations, Flowerbeds Ideas, Summer Borders, Fall Borders


Using a fairly basic Mediterranean plant palette, this steep hillside has been turned into a lush landscape that is also easy to care for! When in full bloom, this hillside burst with colors: the cool blue and purple tones of Sage, Lavender, Catmint or Pride of Madeira contrast with the warm golden shades of the English Rose or the tangerine hues of Cape Fuchsias and pomegranate. Adding their sculptural look, the ornamental grasses add an airy feel to the whole scenery with their leaves, whispering in the breeze. A fabulous way of softening the edges of the stone staircase!

Most plants selected by Derviss Design are drought tolerant, water-wise or deer resistant.
