My name is Colleen and I am the owner of Hillside Planter.
I, like many homeowners in California and abroad, deal with a steep slope or hillside. We share the frustration of trying to landscape a hillside and having to replant over and over again. Hand watering plants and watching the water run down the hill, showing the lack of penetration of water to the plant and adding to the soil erosion…
After replanted twice, I started to water more. But still the water wasn’t penetrating to the plant. My water bill increased dramatically.
I decided there must be something out there that will help with the soil erosion and water runoff.
I went into every nursery at every large HOME, GARDEN, and HARDWARE store I passed by, as well as
independent nurseries,and not one of them gave me a solution I could afford….most told me that I needed to put up some kind of retaining wall (TERRACE YOUR HILL) and handed me a list of Landscapers. Some showed me a mesh fabric you lay down, but that was pretty ugly.
WATER CONSERVATION: I want to help Homeowners who want to conserve water, water more efficiently, while having beautiful landscaping.
So I took matters into my own hands by designing and now starting to manufacturer THE HILLSIDE PLANTER!
I had to cut my hillside watering by up to 40% – 50%!
