A new condominium building was being built on the top of a very steep slope overlooking the Humber River. The slope was eroding and what wasn’t a sheer shale cliff was covered by invasive Manitoba Maple trees and vines. We cut everything that didn’t belong, used the logs to create terraces and then replanted and seeded the slope.
The upper tableland section was planted as a natural garden, with a more formal arrangement than the slope below the silt fence.
This is how it looked one year later.
The formal planted area one year later in late fall.
