Hooray we did it! This has to be the largest outdoor project we have undertaken and it was absolutely worth the effort. When we moved into this place there was a 45 degree slope covered with gravel that had to be negotiated in order to get to the front door. Now we have actual stairs and a nice clear path that won't grow weeds, I feel deeply satisfied. It's true we still need a railing and some lighting but hey a little bit at a time...kaizen!
Rasta our dog definately approves!
