I'd like to add more veggie beds but one of the challenges I face is that my property is very sloped. We do have some flat areas of our property but we tend to use those areas since they are flat and easier for playing soccer/volleyball, patio/grilling, fire pit, and you can't really setup a kiddie pool on a slope, etc. Ideally, I'd love to convert most of our sloped lawn into garden space but this is obviously a challenge for growing veggies.
I found this lovely idea for a garden on a slope and thought it would be perfect for me! I really would rather not work with wood since I currently have a number of beds with rotting wood that needs to be replaced... I'm also really a fan of the curved veggie bed!
I've also been reading up on keyhole gardens and was wondering if I could possible create a hybrid of the idea above and a keyhole garden... I'm at the point where I need to start another compost pile anyway The challenge would be making sure that the compost pile is at the top and sloped appropriately to sufficiently feed/water the rest of the raised bed.
I wouldn't do the terracing as pictured in the link, but probably just start with one bed and see how that goes before adding more (partly because the interlocking bricks are going to be some work/time and expense and I have other projects planned). Here's a photo of the space...
Thoughts or advice? Is this a silly idea? Does it seem like it would work?
