Stepping Stone / July 5, 2018 / Christine
One idea that almost never fails is the consideration of the landscape of the garden in which you want to place the stepping stones into if you think about your garden while planning your stepping stone you will surely have a result that focuses on the whole look and relates and communicates with the garden itself a lot of people get so excited about the stepping stones they detach them from the garden and if the stepping stones do not match the environment they will simply look bad and disturb the flow of your garden – even if these are unique and wonderful stepping stones.
From their original use as a functional yet decorative way to delineate a path through ornamental gardens stepping stones are now considered a part of the garden. Commercially there are almost endless themes available to suit any taste or interest come in a variety of shapes and sizes even 3 dimensional. There is also the option of making your own garden stepping stones for an even more personal touch. There are ready made molds available or you can almost any container you may have that is the right size and shape for what you wish to make; just make sure the container is the same size or smaller at the bottom or you may never get your completed treasure out.
With a nice set of stepping stones you will definitely feel the difference in your garden this is a work that might take about 2 of 3 weekends and you can use it for good fun with the whole family assigning tasks to each family member and making your family work as a team on the stepping stones project. Some research is always good from the internet to the hardware stores or if you are thinking of getting someone to do this for you looking over the designs and material available or patterns that you would like to design.
