Types of tiers for an alpine slide for a summer cottage

How to make a multi -tier alpine slide

For the lower tier of the alpine hill, the highest plants are used, which should be planted at the foot of the hill.

It can be small coniferous trees, the growth of which can be controlled by regular pruning.

For the middle tier of the alpine hill, spring bulbous plants should be selected. They are planted in a kind of “pockets”. Seduma, Astilba, lavender, bells, phlox, milkweed and other plants are suitable for this purpose.

For “rugs” use a large number of plants for an alpine hill. They grow between the stones. Do not ignore such plants: they have a great appearance and can prevent erosion of soil.

If you are not confident in your own abilities, invite a landscape designer who will do all the work for you.
