It looks like you may be asking about how to set the direction of the gradient? If so, you simply specify to followed by the direction you'd like to move towards (bottom, top, left, right) or a combination.

#gradient {
  /* gradient moves left to right */
  background-image: linear-gradient(to right, blue, green);
}
