I don't know offhand but those stone slab steps are about 5"-6" thick and the treads are about 12" deep, so you should be able to figure it out from there.

If you're concerned about the maintenance involved on a hillside where flowers are planted along the sides of a path or set of stairs, consider a rock garden. It will accomplish the task of preventing soil erosion while keeping maintenance to a minimum.
