What Size Do My Stairs Need To Be?
Steps are made up of 2 parts, the tread, the part you step on, and the rise, the elevation between steps. It is very important you have the right tread depth and riser height to make for a comfortable and safe journey. The smaller the tread the greater the rise. Generally, the smallest tread available is 12 inches which would have a 7-inch rise, while an 18-inch tread would have a 4-inch rise.
There are many factors that can change these dimensions. The important thing is that the stairs are comfortable to use and do not encroach on the other elements of the design. A&Z Interlock landscape designers help our customers create a design that considers ALL elements of landscape design.
Interlock Stairs, Pathways and Sidewalks
A front entrance walkway and steps welcome your home from work each day, they provide direction to your guests and connect the front of your house with the neighbourhood you live in. Interlock steps are a great way to complement the design of your home, invest in a long term solution that withstands the Ottawa winters, and creates a safe non-slip surface.
Enhance the beauty of your home.
Enhance features of your house that work well with landscape design from A&Z. Architectural features like pillars and windows should complement your landscape features while matching the style of your home.
Increase Curb Appeal & Value
The Ottawa real estate market is booming and one of the best investments you can make is including interlock landscaping. Driveways, stairs, walkways and planters last a lifetime and the return on investment when it comes time to sell your home is very valuable.
Make Safety A Priority For Your Home
Increase safety with lighting, non-slip interlock, parcel drop boxes and knee walls. Porch pirates and ice storms won’t be a match for your redesigned landscape stairways.
