    Default concrete steps?

    I have been asked to render? a set of steps made from besser blocks 2 risers high they have been filled with concrete and left with slight concavities MIL would like me to render the top surfaces and I am unsure what mix of cement & sand or are there premixes available? or actually what is the right way to do this as cannot put down anything too thick and alter the riser heights. any suggestions?
    Some people are like slinkies - not really good for anything, but they
    bring a smile to your face when pushed down the stairs .

    What height is the block 190 or 200mm ? Maximum riser height is 190 mm.Personally if it was my mother in law i would make them about 2000 mm fall .!
