Outside Step

The step from my front walk to the landing in front of my front of the door measures 11 inches. How can I safely make it so that the step will not be as high without tearing out the landing and rebuilding it?

Re: Outside Step

If your walkway is wide enough, say 3' or wider, you can add a step very easily. Form for a step about a foot deep, as long as your existing step and 5.5" high, mix some concrete and pour into your form. Finish the concrete any way you like, wait a few hours and if dry, remove the forms. Don't step on this new step for a few days. Remember, concrete fully cures in about 28 days, though you don't have to wait that long to start stepping on it.
