    It looks good! Seems like it would be very slippery if it gets wet.

    You got lucky they fit exactly with no cuts! Looks good. They don't do that kinda stuff up here. Probably because we get snow and more importantly we put down salt. I like to see something different like that.

    I have a house like that for snow removal. Those things are so slippery. My other crew had been doing this house all of december (7) times. well in jan. i went there and forgot about it and just about fell on my azz. i went sliooing and sliding all the way to the front door.

    wow I really like that. It gives a more natural look than just concrete.
