These clients had a predicament. They had a very narrow lot on the lake with only a few feet between their house and septic system that could be used to access the lake. The wooden stairs that had been there were nice, but they really wanted a way to drive their golf cart down to the lake. They were resigned to trade stairs for a sloped path that wasn’t as easily navigated on foot, when we proposed a solution. Inspired by a recent trip to Europe, we proposed combining the stairs and golf cart path. We used rubble stone for more tire traction and chose a color to match the steps. We also widened the existing asphalt path to accommodate a golf cart and installed new plants.
