Fortunately, we Duluthians live on a hill and enjoy the beautiful views.  Unfortunately, the views of our yard aren’t always as beautiful, because hillsides are one of the hardest obstetrical to overcome in a landscape. Many of you have probably just given up on the idea of ever having a beautiful and useful hillside landscape, but take heart! We can work with you to create a beautiful and usable landscape. There are several alternatives Miller Creek has used to address a hillside landscapes:

Natural Rock Pocket Gardens

Boulder walls with stone stairs is
a classic way tame a hillside.


Terraced Modular Walls








Stepped Planter Boxes







Raised Fruit Garden Beds







This 2017 install shows a how we used native plants, boulders, and natural stairs and stepping stones, to transform the modern home hillside.
