Vintage Awning on paved pad, tips needed

Looking for tips/ideas on deploying the awning on non grass/gravel areas. I have a three pole system with stakes.

Photos would also be appreciated!

Thanks in advance.

I've used these before:

If one 5-pound weight per pole isn't enough for stability, you can stack them. Each layer should be rotated from the one before so that all of the slots in the stacked weights don't line up.
I thought getting old would take longer!
