Help, help, help!!!! I have a bank (UGH) in my back yard with steps (3-4) leading up to another level of the yard (oh yes). These steps need replacing and I do not have a clue what to use to use to replace them other than paving bricks. I need something that is safe and not slippery and help on how to do this. The inital steps were not built very well and look atrocious!.
Also, I would like to replace much of the foliage on the bank. At the moment the bank has low growing shrubs, and lirope (which is out of control). I would also like plants that would hold back water since I get a lot of run-off from the neighbors.
