Solutions for level differences

Solutions for level differences : Solutions for level differences

During the global landscaping, we cannot ignore the surface and its characteristics. The surface and the landscaping interact, so we have to weigh up that we reform the surface or the concept.
Horizontal and slightly sloping flat surface:
The landscaping is not a hard task, mostly it only needs good eyes. The surface should be 15-30 cm lower than the street level, which means 1 or 2 steps. So we can keep the rainwater and lead it to the garden where it becomes useful. If we form the surface like this, the ground’s impression will be more preferential, it’ll look larger than the reality.

Strongly sloping surface: It is not so easy work, it needs a professional landscape gardener. Before landscaping we have to weigh up the degree of changing



Solutions for level differences : Stairs

We can make easier the walk on steep garden paths by setting steps. Steps should be built if the slope’s degree is over 15 cm per meter, or if the path goes over buttress. First of all the steps are technical buildups, so they have to meet some technological and safety requirements. However, they are part of the garden, so we have to form them in accordance with the whole.   The size of the steps depends on the function of the stairs. The width of the steps is defined by the width of the path; the height and the depth of them are set by the comfortable length of a step. Generally it is 60 – 65 centimeters. So the height determines whether the steps are comfortable enough. Because of the sufficient drainage, form the stairs sloping (1 – 2%), from top to bottom.


Rock-gardens, tilts

Solutions for level differences : Rock-gardens, tilts

Rock-garden is not necessarily part of gardens. It has reason for existence in highlander gardens, full of sloping tilts and buttresses, because of big level differences. It is pointless and untrue to imitate stones with concrete or brick. The most prevalent plants in rock gardens are perennials, but rarely annuals are planted among them. Collect the stones narrowly, because the most beautiful stones are covered by moss. These coarse, so-called lacustrine limestones are already decorative, and the plants take root in their holes. Place the stones in the soil that they make a natural impression. Do not set on edge the stones, place them naturally and delve them partly in the soil.

For the sake of stability grub the majority of the stone in the soil, only the smaller


Retaining walls

Solutions for level differences : Retaining walls

We build retaining wall on sloping surface where we have to solve big level differences. The purpose of the retaining wall is to prevent the skid of the soil. Furthermore retaining walls enlarge the useful surface in the garden. The retaining wall can be made of freestone, concrete, brick or woof, but make sure that it fits in with the already existing elements. The retaining wall can be built with and without bonding. Make sure that the purchased materials are lasting and frozen-proof.
Dry-stacked retaining wall: Without bonding, we have to use frozen-proof stones. Build in the stones along their natural stratification, otherwise the water seeps into the stones and the stones freeze. Do not build it stiltedly. We can make the surface of the retaining wall by planting
