Contemporary garden steps


Often steps in a garden might just be a necessity but certainly have the capacity to be a dramatic feature that enhances the space greatly. The ergonomics of level changes are quite important and for me there are certain dimensions I like to keep to. I prefer treads to be no less than 40cm for example and riser no more than 15cm if possible as steps should be comfortable to climb up as well as down from. Integrating a variation in material between the tread and riser, incorporating lighting and various material finishes can add exciting details which transform a mere change in level into a feature in its own right.
