steps - What a great design! I will like to know if you need to lay the bricks over concrete blocks or is just a wall made of bricks? what is the hight & witdh of the steps? border of the back look thinner than the steps? is this correct? if using buestone patio would you suggest doing the steps with bluestone threads? do you have additional pictures of this project? interest on seeing details on the steping and the path towards the house how you conect both. i really love it!!!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Vanessa Brunner added this to Garden Edging: Clean Lines for Your Landscape
The bricks were used horizontally here — not just as a mowing strip, but as a larger surface for landscaped steps. Any direction works, and installation is about the same — it just depends on how much coverage you want.
Marianne Lipanovich added this to Lay of the Landscape: Traditional
A large lawn may be a traditional approach to a landscape space, but breaking it into tiered levels edged with brick gives the same sense of expansiveness while adding individuality.
J. Peterson Garden Design added this to Texas Gardener's September Checklist
Fertilize the lawn. Fall is the best time to fertilize your lawn. Use a lawn fertilizer with a ratio of 3:2:1 or 4:2:1 of nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium at a rate of 1 pound per 1,000 square feet of grass. Always follow the directions on the package and avoid overfertilizing, which will only damage your lawn. Resist the urge to use "winterizing" fertilizers until late October or early November. Water well after applying fertilizers.
