Garden on large berm

capefloMarch 9, 2012


We are planning to construct a large berm (kind of more like a small hill) that will serve as a privacy screen and one that we will cover with a good variety of plantings. It will be about 25 feet long x 15 feet wide...sort of kidney shape... and maybe about 5 feet at the highest point. My question is .... can anyone share any pictures of similar scenario.... or direct me to some site that might have something like this.... looking for reference, inspiration... etc. Thanks very much.

A search of this forum for the word "berm" might help. You will likely find some photos, and some discussion. Doing an image search in Google for "berm" or "berm planting" might also work.
