    Default Outside steps

    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.

    For the foliage, you might have to adjust the slope elevation if it is indeed run-off issues. Aside from some moss or pond grass, unless you have very thick plant growth near the water it will still have run-off.
