Finally getting around to...
Putting another path in. The property consists of the lot the house is on, the two lots at the same level but north of it and a fourth lot that lies at the bottom of the hill just west of the lot next to the house...so it's basically T-shaped, with the three lots that form the top of the T, at the top of the hillside.
Anyway, I posted on here about 4-5 years ago a path I built that went diagonally down mostly the middle, undeveloped lot. Now I'm adding another path that goes up the lot farthest from the house. All this stuff is primitive and the hillside is steeper than the photos present. Each step is about four feet from the next. I've got eight steps finished and another five to do.
I started planting this area with cycads, yuccas, agaves, dasylirions, etc. but it got too difficult to access for this aging body. Hopefully this path will help.
