Here is the rip wrap from before with eight steps.
During the week I added a ninth step, and this weekend started on the rip wrap between the steps and the wall.
This view shows how the ninth step really helped bring the level of the top of the stairs up to the level of the ground at the top, four and a half feet above the brick walkway.
There was a gap at the top of the steps, between the steps and the ground, that I built up with varying sizes of rocks sorted out from all the dirt generated by this project.
Here’s another view.
More rocks going in:
And more rocks:
The rock pile:
Fussing with rocks:
And more fussing:
I covered the larger rocks with 1″ rocks and a few of the 1/4″ – 1/2″ rocks.
A Roadrunner came by to inspect my work.
The finished product.
