Float Steps on Foliage Make steps float by hiding their risers behind a thick carpet of foliage. Try Boston ivy; its clinging tendrils make it easy to train and keep trimmed to prevent tripping, and its green leaves turn a rich reddish-purple in the fall.
I love this all the way, but I live in a much drier, hotter, sunnier location. I love the color and style of stone steps, love the shades of greens and the few scattered flowers. Even the coniferous trees in this picture are brighter green, looking more "you're yang and alive" than most pine trees.
