    If I were to use ice it would be more along the size of ice cubes not blocks.


    I did get some minor scratchesin front of the step. If it bugs me terribly I will touch up with a small amount of the polymeric sand. No biggie.

    I wanted to use ice cubes but I thopught the weight may crush them.??...Maybe that would have been best.??

    It would take a lot of weight to crush the ice.


    Seriously, I would likely set it in place and use a pinchbar to get the straps out. Adjust as needed and move on to the next one.

    Glad you used the ice and showed us that it works and allowed us to critique the project..

    Actually I *did* do that when I put a couple granite curbstones in front of my barn entrance. Was a while ago, so I can't tell you how many tries it took. Also didn't need quite the precision of your step.

    Looks nice though, glad that ice approach worked for you!
