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.
These stones can be used anywhere that could use a little color. Pick out the size and shape stone you like and one that fits your area the best. Remember you can put these little jewels in your garden areas as well. I suggest you use the concrete colored stones it is easier to cover with the paint. The first step is to use an exterior primer to seal the stone. Very important note seal only the top of the stone do not seal the entire stone. It needs a place for the moisture to come out. If you seal the bottom it will crack.
Another feature of a lighted stepping stone is the added sense of security. When people go away on vacation they can feel safer knowing the stepping stone will be turned on to signify that someone may be home even when they are not. This will also allow people to have some light when they return home at night. A lighted solar stepping stone has many purposes in addition to looking attractive. The bulbs inside do not need to be changed often and the stones can capture enough energy to last a few nights even if the sun did not come out that day.
