These steps are made of timber, most likely 8x8 western red cedar.

This is gold decomposed granite quarried in California. It is a blend of gravel from 1/4" & smaller all the way to dust. This is compacted over an additional base rock layer that is also compacted.

You would need a metal worker to fabricate this. Usually, the railing, the rail end, and the posts all come separate and need to be welded together after verifying the dimensions in the field.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

All garden styles can benefit from the addition of rock. Here a more traditional cottage style garden uses rock slabs to create a hillside planter.

Landscape areas that don't look as structured. Also, the rocks offer some protection from critter and kid feet. We wouldn't necessarily have to use boulders but probably a good idea to think about how we protect the landscaping in the front yard where the kids and deer and dogs play.
