I was planning on having a 4' x 4' landing outside of door (code) and then lowing the rest of the deck to only 20'' above the ground. This way I don't have to have a railing and the dog can jump up on the deck anywhere she pleases when we are playing fetch.

Are there any canvas coverings that could handle some snow on them (Montana) we get some late spring snow sometimes. I could build a pergola and cover with canvas in the summer.
