Pages: 1 2 3 4 1 Comment on Inexpensive DIY Concrete Steps- Tutorial Hi Sue! I love the concept, and am thinking about adding that project to my own garden, but in looking at the costs, I can’t see how the cost was only $30. Did you already have some of the materials on hand? The way I look at it: 1 step = 3 x 80lb concrete + 2×6 + stain = $30 for just one step, perhaps more. Did I miss something in the directions? Comments are closed.
