Background: People with mobility limitations might have difficulty accessing different part of their homes, especially the entrance. There are a number of solutions providing accessible entry to the home with the most common being ramps and lifts.

Objective: This publication aims to determine whether landscape modifications can be an alternative to ramps and lifts for providing an accessible entry to one’s home. The advantages and disadvantages of this type of home modification are examined.

Results: This publication provides information on whether a landscape modification could provide an alternative solution to ramps or lifts for level entry to the home. It also discusses common questions about the feasibility of the construction, the cost and which professional you would need to approach to discuss about landscape modifications for your home.

Audience: This HMinfo publication is addressed to people with mobility limitations and their carers.
