Landscaping

Looking down the steps

These steps have been planned for a while. This week they happened. The main reason for replacing the narrow, steep grass path here was to install a drainage system underneath them. The storm water from our neighbour above rushed down the slope, scouring out the garden and killing off several plants that couldn’t cope with the boggy conditions.

Jason designed these steps and Ryan built them. We have already had heavy rain and can see the water rushing, as planned, out at the base of the steps and over the lawn, down to the pond.

Walking up the steps is pleasure compared to the slippery grass path which was difficult to mow.
