When you walf out my front door you will have pavers, then a rose garden that is 3 feet from 40"+ drop to next elevation. Do I need a railing?
Expert:  Rick replied 2 years ago.

Yes you need a railing on both sides of the stairs unless one side is against a wall, then you only need 1 railing . Any set of stairs higher than 30" requires a railing
