How can I make an attractive walkway on a steep slope?
I have a fairly steep UNEVEN slope going down into my yard. To the right of that is the deck on the back of the house. How can I make an attractive path/walkway/side walk that goes down the hill, only partially, and veers to the right? I'd rather not have a sharp right turn. (grading the slope is not really an option.)

Hi Cindy, do you have a picture you could share?
Hi Cindy - Check out these ideas on Pinterest:
It sounds like you need to add stairs. They can be large and wide or normal stepping stone size.
I have used landscape retaining wall blocks. They come in either 4" or 6" high. I dig out a flat area, place the blocks, and then fill in the area with gravel, flat stones, "step-ons", or what ever you want for a flat or small slope landings. See steps behind raised beds.
