Wooden Steps.

This method works particularly well if you’re dealing with a backyard that has a significant slope.


Paver stone/Flagstone.

Fill the gaps between the stones with moss or pebbles.


Wood Planks.

If you opt for this method, try to used reclaimed wood or old fence slats and save a tree or two.



With brick you get the added bonus of laying out a unique pattern. Juxtapose the harshness of the brick with plushy grass or colourful flowers.
