265/366: the second set of bluestone steps

After completing the first set of bluestone-edged steps,  it was time to create some more between the middle and top tiers of the back yard.

Feeling he had learnt enough from his stint as the labourer for Garner the Gardener, my husband with his tradesman’s background, and with a little help from a mate, decided to tackle the task himself.

Since we had already sloped the area as a grassy ramp, measuring and digging out the steps was the first task.

Then the walls of cut bluestones were built, followed by the pavers for the steps, with edges of bluestone.
