Great article. I love the plantings between the tread and riser of slab steps as it's essentially a dead space that rarely gets any foot traffic that deep on the step. Perfect for succulents and small hardy grasses.

I love the way hardscapes look. That's why I want to incorporate some of these ideas into my property. Planting into the hardscape sounds wonderful. It seems like a great way to add a unique touch to the landscape. http://www.natures-design.biz/services
