I built a set of drystone steps last year for which I have extensive before, during and after pictures. We don't get many hard landscaping questions here so I'm not certain whether it would be relevant to do a how-to-build blog entry.
Thoughts and comments?
And where is the Gardening blog?
Okay I put a first draft up here and realized that this could be a large post with many pictures, People write books on this and this Q & A post will be lengthy.
Edit 2: excellent points! I will try and break it up into several questions. I only scratched the surface for what is a project that can go well or horribly wrong depending on your preparation and experience. More to come during the week. Thanks
If this looks like good content I will take the draft off blogger and put up a longer version here.
Edit 3: I started posting and now I feel embarrassed at seeing all the questions asked and answered by me
