We have a new side porch but we have not yet graded the adjoining driveway nor have we done any landscaping.
The steps are merely slabs of bluestone laid on the clay soil.
Over time the bottom step especially starts to teeter due to water that runs by the house and under the step.
Since we’re having a party today it was indeed time to stabilize the steps.
Charlie pulled them all away from the foundation and used our little pile of driveway gravel to level them off.
That should hold us for a little while.
