Our deck is under 30" in height, however I cannot get the risers on the steps to be only 3. So that would be two treads.
We always end up with 4 risers or three treads.
The deck height at the stair location is 26". With a max riser of 7.75" this requires 3+ risers.
This means I have to have a railing. We would like not to have a guard around the deck, but the stairs are mid span on each side of the deck.
Putting railings on just the stairs looks goofy.
