    After a couple years of reading posts and being entertained by the ongoing dialogues with Rusk I thought i'd post some of our work. As you'll see we mostly use natural stone. Give some feedback, criticism, whatever.

    Looks nice, when I build steps like those I like to use either large stones next to like you did on some of the or use some type of decorative stone on the edge rather the mulch.
    If I don't do it it's constant maintenance every time it rain, mulch all over the walk and steps.
    I like the last picture a lot it blend so nice with the steps

    Thanks for the feedback. Never usually a problem with the mulch, all of the steps are always pitching to the front for drainage so when it rains any debris follows suit. However I do like to use large river rock or similar along the steps as well, can clean things up a bit and give a different look.

    I love natural stone, your work looks pretty nice too! My only comment would be the last picture you show with the bottom step near 8" or so and a few of the middle ones are a bit shallow. It looks a bit unfinsihed also with a bunch of steps leading nowhere. Nice cutting on your bluestone walkway btw.
