Natural-looking gardens are terribly popular now. They are fashionable, wildlife-friendly and practical, ideal for the not-so-tidy person or for anyone who is too busy for a fussy kind of garden. Wild roses and single-flowered shrub roses should be planted with perennials and grasses chosen to create a more natural, old-fashioned look. Examples include globe thistles (Echinops bannaticus), monkshood (Aconitum), and salvia (Salvia nemorosa). They also make good companions for many of the ornamental grasses such as blue oat grass (Helictotrichon), Festuca scoparia and F. ovina, which are also suitable as underplanting for floribunda and hybrid tea roses.
Landscaping With Edible Plants – The edible garden is one of the hottest landscaping trends today. Vegetable gardens, herb gardens, fruit trees, berry bushes – all are items that a landscaping company can use to transform a garden into a place where kids don’t just go to play, they go to eat. Parents benefit too; they can save on grocery bills by making dinner from ingredients grown in their garden.
Perfect spots for edible plants. Most yards contain a mixture of sunny spots and shady spots. Few edible plants will grow in the shade, but sunny areas can prove very useful.

This can work out great. Also if the hill is not too steep, grade the property in order to reduce or eliminate the height completely.
