After making a large pond, I have a lot of soil left (some poor, some topsoil) and would like to use it in our 3/4 acre garden. The back garden is a long rectangle with pond (near house), veg. plots, flower beds but plenty of available space. Any ideas on incorporating this into the landscape of the garden, which is very level and has a great view to the mountains?
Raised borders can rise from front to back and can be a way of displaying plants better as well as giving them a greater depth of soil. Or you might have some area that would benefit from having a mound of earth.
Ideally the top soil should have been separated from the subsoil and the top soil put back on top of the re-located subsoil.
