1902 Home Is Crying for stairs and landscaping.

2 months ago

Hello All! I can’t put this off any more! The bottom stairs have no railing and are dangerous for friends with mobility issues. The 6x6s were ok 30 years ago but now look awful! They’re hard to keep ice off of and clear snow from. Though I’d LOVE to keep the tree because it’s at least 40 years old, the retaining wall beside the garage makes it tricky to drive into the small garage because it’s so close.
Finally, along the sidewalk there’s a three foot space between the walk and the porch that’s bricked in. Would it make sense to put in shrubs or something low maintenance beside the walk on a very busy street to add curb value?
Can anyone help me bring the grace back to this heritage home in a low maintenance way that will help me age gracefully as well?
