Steps on a curve - Is it necessary to have the stones set on a concrete bed or can it be sand that is level?

Jay Sifford Garden Design added this to 6 Suggestions for Harmonious Hardscaping
In the previous photo we can see only one side of the hardscape. Here we see rhythm alternating between both sides of the hardscape. Notice how both the boulders and the landscape lighting balance this stairway from side to side, pulling the eye up to the top in a pleasing way. Having a cute dog as a focal point never hurt, either.The restrained use of boulders can be an effective tool in achieving continuity from one side of the hardscape to the other. Just be sure not to overdo it.
