Recommended maximum grade slope between steps? - We have a hillside to the beach on Vashon Island near Seattle with a 14' drop in grade. I'm hoping for a "switchback" curved path with as few stairs as possible. Do you recommend a maximum slope for the landings (grass) between stairs? I've read 5% maybe 8%? Thanks!!

I would shoot for 5% if you can get it with your steep site.
