Make Your Steep Driveway More Functional With This Upgrade
When your home is built on the top or bottom of a slope, walking up or down the driveway could be a struggle. To avoid this, build a staircase right in the middle of the driveway.
Stairs are much easier and safer to navigate for everyone, especially children, the elderly, and people with mobility issues. They are also a stylish addition to the front yard.
When placed in the middle of the driveway, the stairs won't look as awkward as if you tried to put them on one side. In fact, they will look more planned and organized.
If you're adding one to your driveway, get a permit from local authorities and consider adding ramps or heated stair mats if you live in a place that receives heavy snowfall.
