Stepping Stone / July 5, 2018 / Christine
If there is sod to remove from your path area use the sod cutter to cut a checkerboard pattern inside the borders of the path dividing the sod into approximately 1 squares (for easy removal). Next remove the sod and soil to a depth of about 4. Now that you have your path excavated its time for the pea gravelthis can be purchased at your local landscape firm or at a crushed rock supplier. Pea gravel is a product made up of small rounded stones which is easy to spread and easy on the body if you fall.
The last step is again sealing the entire piece of artwork with an outdoor water repellent product. You can use a high gloss or matt finish your choice. Apply your artwork to the wall or fence with the appropriate screws or nails. If you dont want the screw heads to show put the piece up first and then paint it in place. Another option I love for outside use is painting concrete stepping stones. They come in all shapes and sizes in your local hardware store garden area. This is a great time of year to do this project because it will be ready for the spring.
To bring more pizzazz to an otherwise bland garden why not add a couple of garden stepping stones? You have got to admit we all have felt the need to improve the look of our home. The garden not exempted. An easy way to bring life and add a landscaping feel would be to install decorative garden stepping stones. Great news though garden stepping stones are fairly easy to make. Materials arent hard to find. And to top it all off this home project of yours can easily turn into a fun and exciting activity to do with the kids.
