It appears that the risers are open, I very much like the look...I am wondering about the drainage.

Glad you like the look and great question about the drainage. We laid a pebble mosaic (made of mortared Mexican beach pebbles) that runs the length of the stairs and evokes the motion of water. The water runs down that into a trench drain at the landing.

Jay Sifford Garden Design added this to Dare to Mix Things Up in the Landscape
Here we see some enviable garden steps. Note the elements involved, particularly the metal stair rail and the boulder wall. These two elements have comparable sizes and shapes yet contrast in texture and, more subtly, in color. I don't know about you, but I want to take a walk down these steps and spend some time in this garden. With an entrance like this, it's bound to be spectacular.
