Slope steps and embankment steps
Garden ideas for the slope
Steep terrain in the garden is difficult to reach. With slope steps you can solve the problem very easily and safely. In the following, we will introduce you to the advantages and the variants of the slope steps that are available in our online shop.
A short history of the slope steps
The online shop slopesteps.com is run by Ulrich Wilhelm and is based in Neusäß near Augsburg in Germany. Ulrich Wilhelm knows from his own experience what it means when steep terrain in the garden is very difficult to access and when it is almost impossible to tend plants or weed. So the idea was born to find a remedy and step by step the first slope steps and embankment steps were developed. Today, you can choose from a wide range of products in the slope steps online shop and realise your own slope garden ideas. The slope steps and embankment steps are unique in this form, because they have the European patent EP 3 461 966 B1 and the German utility model DE 20 2017 005 022 at the German Patent and Trademark Office.

All slope steps and embankment steps that you can find in our online shop are practical, functional and offer you barrier-free access to the slope.

If you need assistance in selecting steps for outside use, we will be happy to advise you.

Steps in the garden - safe with the walkway slab
Similar to the slope step, the walkway slab is also available in the variants:
- Mini with 200 mm depth
- Midi with 250 mm depth
- Maxi with 300 mm depth
available. You can also choose between tread plates made of raw or galvanised steel. If you would like to realise your garden ideas not only for the slope but also for other areas, the tread plates are a good addition to the slope steps. You can lay them either individually or one behind the other as a path. They are particularly suitable where it quickly becomes slippery or dirty. Your feet stay clean while you can safely reach every bed in your garden. If the location is only slightly sloping or level, the steps are ideal. They are very easy to install. All you have to do is lay them on the ground where you want to place them and then tread them down. That's all.
Basically, the railing can be installed anywhere, whether on a slope, in a corner or on curves.
Railing for staircase construction in the garden - as a supplement to the slope steps
On slopes, not only a firm footing is important, but also a secure foothold. For this reason, we offer railings made of raw or galvanised steel. The bars are 125 cm high, of which 25 cm disappear into the ground when installed. This leaves 100 cm left over. The bars are 12 mm thick. For the installation of one metre of railing, you need 8 rods. Regardless of how long you want it to be, you must always finish off the railing with an end rod, which you can obtain from us.
Basically, you can install the railing anywhere, be it on a slope, in a corner or with curves. It is very easy and if you no longer need the railing in one place, you can dismantle it very quickly and re-erect it elsewhere if necessary.
Select slope steps - Order sample step
It is not always easy to find the right slope steps when you want to realise your garden ideas for the slope. For this reason, we not only offer you detailed advice, but also the opportunity to obtain a sample step of the Mini type at a greatly reduced price. This service can only be used once per person. If you would like to make use of it, we will grant you a discount of 40 euros (incl. German VAT) on the purchase price. With a slope step of the Mini type, you can easily test whether the slope steps are right for you because the leg lengths of the front and rear feet are also identical for the Midi and Maxi types.
If your garden has a slope of 30% or more, it is very difficult to walk and work on the terrain.
This is where our slope steps can help.
