Curb Appeal & Flower Bed

last month


I’m looking to create some type of flower bed to go around my house. I have a very never terrain, with a gully at the rear of my house and a drainage stream on the left. The front elevation is much higher than the rear. It makes it impossible to mow. Additionally, because the roof has an overhand, the soil closet to the house is dry and will not allow grass to grow. I’m a bit OCD, so I’m tempted to just add in some landscape lumber and follow the angles of the home, but I’m not sure if it’ll look right. I want to eventually mulch in the steep banks so that I don’t have to worry about the grass.

Does anyone have any suggestions on anything that they would do on the exterior. The home is rough, it’s 24 sided, with each side being about 8ft. I’m not rich by any means, so it would need to be something that I could do myself and will not cost a fortune.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.
