Landscaping Next To A Creek
I recently purchased a house that backs up to a creek. The back yard is basically one very large deck with a steep grade leading to the creek. Last summer, I struggled to keep the area below my deck maintained as it quickly grew large weeds as you often see next to drainage ditches. This spring, I am determined to get this area looking nice and under control so that I can fully enjoy my unique property.
I am looking for any advice on how to landscape this area. It poses many challenges as there is no access to bring in the equipment necessary to re grade or spread topsoil. However, I am willing to do the required manual labor to make the area look nice so if I am stuck spreading topsoil by hand then I will do it. I am open to any and all ideas. Your advise is very much appreciated.
