Steps And Stairs For Hillside Yards & Raised Gardens

Naturally, if we're looking at photos to add a set of stairs or steps to our landscaping or yard, we're probably looking to address some change in level, incline, raised garden, or a slope or hillside. And being a functional hardscape element that gets used, landscaping steps and stairs are generally built from stone, concrete, brick, or some other type of block. You may also see them built from timbers or railroad ties which aren't as good a choice since they rot over time.

As well as type of materials used, the size, angle, and distance of slope have an influence in how the stairs look and are built. Also, the plants used to accent the steps play a major role in the atmosphere created around them.
