Outdoor steps to covered porch

Coffee Nut
last month

Hi experts, we wanted to add a large step leading up to the covered porch to allow us to put some planters that flanks either side of the entrance. See image attached - the step would be 11ft by 2.5ft. Question is - would a 2.5 ft deep tread be too wide? Is there any code or regulations on max tread depth? I think the riser would be 6-7” or whatever the standard might be. Thanks and appreciate the help in advance.
