Rock garden for the steep part of the back yard? Cheaper than retaining walls?
A spilled flower pot is the perfect idea of bringing a little whimsy to your garden. Just tip Southern Patio's 22.5" Natural Oak Whiskey Barrel on its side, plant bushels of mums, and you have your own spilled flower planter. http://www.southernpatio.com/products/planters/hdr-012221-22-5-hdr-whiskey-barrel-natural-oak/

Lovely incorporation of irises along a great hardscape. Love the way planting spills over onto the flags - blurred edges.
