The Benefits of Terraced Landscapes
Landscape Tips

The terraced garden technique originated over a thousand years ago in South-East Asia and South America. The technique was developed to deal with mountainous terrain that was unsuitable for food crops.   While the technique may be seen as only belonging to farmers, terraced gardens are perfect for the home landscaper who wants to bring an effective and water wise style of gardening into their home.   

Space and Location 

Terraced gardens work particularly well with smaller landscapes and sloped or hilly sites. By using a terraced style of landscaping you can have more surface area and be capable of more intensive gardening. While traditionally used to grow food crops, terraced gardens also work well for ornamental plants and flowers. 

An added benefit of terraced gardens is accessibly. They can be built to the right height and offer easier access than working on a sloping block.   

Better Water Management
   

If you are keen home gardener, terraced gardens offer increased yield due to their size and water retention abilities. 
 Terraced gardens reduce run-off velocity due to their configuration. This limits erosion and allows the water to pool. The is the reasons terraced gardens are so popular in Asia as they are perfect for growing water-intensive rice. 

Pooled water can be easily managed through a series of sluice gates that pass water to the terrace below. Even bigger set-ups will have pumps that push water back to the top of the terrace allowing the process to start again. 

This effect can easily be replicated by the home landscaper with a simple overflow valve or if you are using planter boxes, cut-outs that allow the water to pass to the box below.   Along with water savings, this method is also energy efficient as the whole garden can be gravity fed instead of using electricity sucking pumps.   

Stability  
   

The final benefit of terraced garden is geo-stability. Terraces reduce the risk of rock and mud slides and can make your garden and home safer.   

Blade Landscape Designs can guide you through any style of landscaping and have designed and built terraced landscapes. For a consultation and assessment of your property call 1800 BLADE.
