I am doing some research on the ins and outs of building a series of either; wide, circular terraced steps covered in lawn or a banked (440mm total height) mound also covered in lawn. The back will be planted up to/not seen so can be steeper.
With the bank version I'm trying to find info about steepest angles for safe lawn mowing(!) and also retaining. CAN anyone point me to a good source of info?
Has anyone got first hand war stories/lessons learned they might share?
all info welcomed
I've found this on the HSE website (it's written by the Landscape Group from a commercial perspective but having reviewed the degree of slopes mentioned I'd say it's still relavent.:
Thanks for the info Phil, luckily it won't be a ride on mower (garden way too small to warrant this!).
