Accessible housing by design - ramps

Example of a graded ramp to driveway; yes, yes, yes; we did this from driveway to our porch and ours was not steep at all like this one that has an elevation drop; it came in handy when my husband was in a wheelchair at 64 years old

ARTICLE: Long-tread, Low-riser steps instead of ramps - For many people with mobility impairments, long-tread, low-riser steps can be easier and safer to use when compared to a 1:12 slope ramp. The large level step tread allows easy walker use, and the risers short height makes stepping up and down easier than standard steps. Balance is easier to maintain on the level steps than on a sloped surface; the steps requires less space than a ramp and are less expensive.
