Default Deck steps

Need some ideas for steps off the side of my deck! The deck is only 16" from ground to decking and runs from house out 15'

Welcome to the site!
Is the deck wood or concrete? Do you want the step to be 15' long or just a step? Is there concrete or hard surface for the step to land on?
If you don't have concrete for it to land on, you could just install so concrete square pavers level with the yard and build a box, to take a tread at 8" high and attach it to the front of the deck.
