Cinder blocks for stairs?
Hi all. I'm gardening on a rather steep dirt/clay slope of at least 45 degrees, maybe more, that is hard in some places and crumbly in others.
There's one particularly crumbly and treacherous area that I'd like to plant, but it's so loose that every time I try to get a few feet above flat ground I end up having to slide down on my butt.
It so happens that someone left about four unused cinder blocks on the property, and I've been thinking about trying to make steps out of them. Is this feasible and how would I go about it?
So far my only idea is to dig them into the slope and use re-bar pounded into the dirt to brace them.
These steps would only be for myself to use for getting access to areas I want to plant and maintain. They don't have to be pretty or safe for any idiot, drunk or child to climb on.
