Did it about a year ago with contrete faux-stone from lowes on a sharp hill to lake houston. Built a flower bed on the top and the homeowner loved it.

Terraces can create several mini-gardens in your backyard. On steep slopes, terracing can make planting a garden possible. Terraces prevent erosion by shortening the long slope into a series of shorter, more level steps. This allows heavy rains to soak into the soil rather than run off and cause erosion.
