Erosion Hill in Sandpoint, Idaho

The slope on the south side of this Sandpoint, Idaho home consisted of a very fine, silty soil, and numerous groundwater springs. The challenge was to give the homeowner a path to their dock while stabilizing the hillside. Sandpoint landscaper Special Additions Landscaping, LLC, cut a grassway from the upper patio to the dock and an extensive planting scheme was designed to cover the remaining hillside with color—and more importantly, roots!
