The owners had planted Hop Bushes along the top of their slope for privacy, but they weren't thriving, and they were part of a collection of various tall plants that overwhelmed the space.
We relocated the Hop Bushes to the side, along the neighbor's driveway, to give some privacy, and used Echium at the top of the slope to act as a lower but still significant barrier to the street. We planted the whole front slope with Senecio, to create a carpet of lovely blue grey. And we re-laid the flagstone in a pleasing circle, creating room to sit out front and enjoy this very friendly neighborhood.
