"However, I had first to rid myself of encumbrances. Just beyond the drive a low shape rose, which proved to be a poorly maintained privet hedge, vastly overgrown but easily breached. I deposited my boots and the several skirts behind it, tucked the doll into the back waistband of my trousers...and crept across the drive to the wall of the house." --Laurie R. King
Moss Stone Garden Steps - Elements like this can add a lot of class and character to a garden and especially a shady area. Moss is one of those elements that give gardens and landscapes an established atmosphere as though it has been there for a very long time. When creating a new yard, patio, or courtyard and you want it to look old and established, try using elements like moss, old weathered and tumbled brick pavers, and old decor. Moss can mane hardscapes like these steps look dated and old.
At the bottom of William Wordsworth's garden at Rydal Mount rests this mossy stairway, long forgotten.
