I have a small but steep backyard (20 ft deep, a gradual 4 or 5ft incline)where the base of the hill turns to gravel and leads under our deck and up against the back of our house. I assume this is for drainage but was not able to ask the original builder. We'd like to look into doing two things 1) making a small planting terrace in the backyard, and by doing so leveling out this tiny hill 2) changing out or reducing some of this terrible looking stone in the backyard
Where would be a good place to start collecting information? We don't have the money to spend on a landscape architect but don't want to cause flooding behind our house either.
