I was visiting a friend who had just moved into a new home, and I saw these steps they made with cinder blocks. I thought this was great. They look so nice and orderly!

Brick steps DO get very slick in winter months. They hold moisture and freeze with a slight film. Just an FYI. They do look nice.

Great frugal idea! I really like the way it looks. As with the last comment posted, I'd put some rubber mat strips down.


You could probably use old car mats. Just use a little construction adhesive. Also I'd put a little cement between them just to keep them from separating.

Is mortar used to keep them from separating (like you use with red bricks)?

I didn't know this and I will tell her these facts right away! I don't know if there is mortar in there or not, I think there is not. Thank you so much!
