After creating a play area for the kids last year I had to redirect the access so I finally got round to finishing it yesterday. I made some steps by splitting some Ash from a recent tree job in half using a hatchet and wedges and adding as a kick board pegged in place by Hazel. The steps were infilled with wood chip.
Didn't cost a penny and I'm rather pleased with them.
Another promise we made good, was to buy something for the top of the steps. : ) (It's for them...honest)
