There are three main ways of providing access to the home where stairs limit accessibility; ramps, lifts and landscape modifications. Landscape modification involves improving accessibility by redesigning the garden and changing the slope of the pathways between street and home entrance.

Landscape modifications have a number of benefits, including maintaining the original look of the home; however use can be limited because it is only possible where site gradient, level and housing type allow. This Factsheet outlines how to assess your home for a landscape modification.
