sized appropriately and of course sturdy to withstand some foot traffic.

stone steps are cut and carved from large boulders. The stones are moderately covered by
moss which blend perfectly with the landscape design.

perennials like ferns, Lily of the Valley and Brunnera along the sides and borders of the light
and bright stone steps will make the feature more appealing.

designed stone steps with rugged and rustic large boulder retaining walls covered in moss.
