A New Way to Go Uphill



These green, grassy steps at The Mount, Edith Wharton's old manse in the Massachusetts Berkshires, are an inspiration. Ever since first seeing them a couple years ago, I've been wondering how I might incorporate a similar feature into my own garden. No success as yet...I'm still wondering how the heck I'd keep the risers trimmed.

Flowrgirl1-yes, it's quite the hacienda. Just a little summer cottage.

Sheila--And it 's amazing that they hold up so well in what has become a public garden.

Chandramouli--I fear a similar effect in my garden may exist only in my imagination, but...who knows?
