I slope, You slope, We slope aka Slope Division Part Deux

Last spring I planted a few hostas on the slope between our left door neighbor and our yard:

Watering them turned out to be an issue because - wait for it - water obeys gravity! After a summer of watching it drain away from my plants I sent 2016 Anny a mental note to move them in the spring:

I picked up a few more from Lowes and moved the survivors down. I also tossed in a few .50 pansies because I can't pass up discounted plants.

Ok, when you zoom out its not a bolded ta-da but I am hoping they will keep pine needles and cones at bay from our lawn plus be easier to maintain.

and if not? I will send 2017 Anny a mental note.
