Garden steps and stairs, like any other element in landscaping and garden design, can do a lot for creating and designing different atmospheres. And most generally, but not always, they are an element with purpose and function as well as beauty. Most often, they are leading somewhere and creating access between levels.
Most of the garden steps in this directory are made of natural earthy materials such as rock, stone, and wood. Even in very sophisticated garden and landscaping plans with prefabricated man made materials, the natural elements fit well and add a touch of mystery and nature to the area. Still, there are a few examples in the directory with wrought iron and concrete that are very nice as well.
