Stepping Stone / July 5, 2018 / Christine.
Decoration for these stones is limited only by your imagination. From a simple hand or paw print (name and date optional) up to a recreation of your favorite piece of art made out of shattered teacups your inner artist can run wild. Even photographs can be used simply put it between 2 sheets of glass and seal the edges with silicone. When using glass as decoration for your stones it is best to place the glass in the container first laying it out as you wish it to be in the finished product then carefully pour the concrete over it; this way there will be no sharp exposed areas.
The nice thing about this task is that you really do not need to spend a lot of money you can experiment with many relatively cheap materials and you can find a stepping stone kit to help you out sometimes just going over your garage results in great things to make stepping stones of pieces of tile or broken tile are very good to use for this purpose the same goes for china or ceramics – very easy things to find. If you are looking for something with a special look and maybe for a unique pattern and some kind of effect you should start looking for the material that will give you this feeling. Stepping stones are lovely to have and great to plan and make have fun.
Would you like to build a path in your garden but dont want to rent a compactor or fuss too much with levels? Are you looking for a walkway thats attractive and durable? Why not try a pea gravel walkway with stepping stones? Its quick relatively easy to install and looks great. Another advantage of this type of path is that its quick and easy to change as well. If you want to change the way the stones are laid out or install new stones to change the look completely it can be done in an afternoon.
The possibilities are endless so have fun choosing your garden statues and finding the best place for them in your lawn and garden. Stepping stones are another great way to add a personal touch to your backyard. You can use them functionally as actual paths to walk on or you can use them to purely decorate an area that may be difficult to do anything else with. Garden stones are great because they are so easy to decorate with; you just place them where you want them and thats it youre done. You can put stepping stones right in the grass to make a path or in an already landscaped area of rock or wood chips. Either way stepping stones are surely easy to deal with.
