I'm building some new steps outside to the back door as the ground level is about 50cm lower than the door threshold. Steps being built out of concrete blocks and finished off with sandstone paving to tie in with the patio.

I wasn't sure what is best to infill the blockwork with - either compacted Type 1 or a lean concrete mix. Is one better than the other? The volume to be filled is about 1m3 so a fair amount. Attached pic is the old steps which are now gone, but the new steps will be very similar.

Thanks
