Long upwards sloping garden - help!

7 months ago

Dear Houzzers,
My north facing back garden is 40 metres long with the rear of the garden almost 4.5 metres higher than the patio level. Ideally I would like to have flat areas so it is more usable - my kids want a place to play ball games and I would like a patio further up the garden. I have spoken to a garden designer who has suggested that I divide the garden into three terraces with a level change of about 1.2 metres between the terraces. However I am a bit reluctant to have such steep level changes in the middle of the garden. What do you think please? Is it better to have a very steep first terrace and shallower terraces in the middle of the garden or should I do as the designer has suggested? Would appreciate your ideas and thoughts thank you!!!
