Stairs Like No Others

Planted steps do require extra care and are really suitable for secondary staircases that get little traffic or those used only seasonally. They not only help to soften the masonry but add as sense of drama and old world charm to your design.

Other than sod, which would need to be trimmed occasionaly, planting any of the "steppables", as the landscape world has dubbed them work just as well.  If you are really adventurous sedums, clipped dwarf bowood, beehive euonymus and flowering thyme, to name a few, could work as well.

  3. I noticed that you source most of the pictures from Pinterest. The original source doesn't get any credit or blog views, while your blog gets repinned/visited. A little research isn't hard to do, and the original source will appreciate! A bookmarklet like src-img can help you identify images...
