    Husband and I dug out the side of our terraced garden, which was pretty precarious going down, and he built and installed wood steps...

    ...and I leveled the inside, put down landscape fabric, and filled with stones from an area up top closer to the house that I'm readying as a space for more garden!

    Next on the docket: finish new garden area!

    Welcome to SS! Those steps look really need and would be great on rainy days and mud season :) You are lucky to have such a handy husband!

    I've been wanting steps like that to our pump house for years, it would be a lot less precarious during icy conditions

    Thanks, all! I didn't think they'd take as long as they did, but I guess that's always the case.

    Awesome job. Absolutely delightful to the eye, and will be so much safer.

    Those projects always do take longer than expected... still working on fencing my garden. Started that 2 years ago.

    Welcome to the group! Very nice steps. I'll be looking forward to garden pictures. It looks like you have a very pretty garden area, and now, steps to make it more functional. I can bet that it WOULD have been hard to navigate that hill without steps, especially after a rain. Nice job, well done!
