Garden Walls and Steps – a very occasional series – Part 3

I like creating these little occasional series posts as they given extra elements to look out for when we visit garden, which we do often. So far I have posted about garden seats, entrances and archways then “Garden Walls and Steps”. Here is number three in a very occasional series of posts of “Garden Walls and Steps” for you to enjoy.

A retired primary school head teacher, I now spend much of my time gardening in our quarter acre plot in rural Shropshire south of Shrewsbury. I share my garden with Jude my wife a newly retired teacher , eight assorted chickens and a plethora of wildlife. Jude does all the heavy work as I have a damaged spine and right leg. We also garden on an allotment nearby. We are interested in all things related to gardens, green issues and wildlife.

Steps can be beautiful while also creating thresholds, giving a mental and visual sense of entry and anticipation as well as a physical one.
Today I am taking a chap out who has suffered strokes and I have to really be careful on steps. I know they must be a challenge to you at times. Do you have mixed feelings about them?

I do indeed have mixed feelings about steps. I can appreciate the beauty of many especially those designed by Lutyens and his fellow architects. These are designed to be aesthetic but also easy to walk up.
