From time to time the poles forming our steps become unstable when the pegs holding them in place become decayed or dislodged.
New pegs are added and nailed to the pole
And the step is built up again with woodchip.
The woodchip eventually consolidates and traps soil being eroded down the slope, if it isn't eroded itself. Unfortunately it is sometimes dug out by badgers for the earthworms and other delicacies living in the woodchip.
It's an on-going job.
