Before & After: A Sleepy Slope Becomes a Hillside Pond

I received a lovely Before & After from Claire over at The Garden Diaries last week and I’m excited to share it with you guys today. What was once just a plain set of steps up the side of a grassy hill has become a fantastic hillside retreat nestled into a slope that leans right next to the house.

I love the addition of the retaining walls and the cascading waterfall really brings this sweet little pond to the next level. I really like the idea of having an area like this so close to the house- it’s nice to be able to step inside for another cup of coffee without having to trek across the entire dew-ridden yard. The other great thing, in this case anyway, is that the waterfall can be probably be heard from indoors, which I’m sure is a relaxing addition to a warm summer night. Yep, I’m sold- definitely adding a project like this to my 5 year plan. Thanks so much for sharing, Claire! –erin

If you have a great landscape makeover that you want to share, do what Claire did and send us an email! You may just see your project featured in a future Before & After article.

    Of all the garden transformations you’ve shown, I think this is my favorite. I never – ever – would have conceived such a dramatic change from the 1st photo.
