Stepping Stone / July 5, 2018 / Christine
Garden stones and statues also make the perfect gift for a friend in need of a landscaping makeover. With the selection made available today you will find something for anyone. Concrete stepping stones can add a quiet elegance to gardens and paths around the home. Making them is fairly easy. One of the best features of creating your own concrete stepping stones is that you can make shapes and colors that are not standardized by commercial use. One of the most versatile easy to use and imaginative accessories for your garden is the stepping stone.
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.
You can also give it a different look by using colored grout between the pieces of glass. (Putting the grout on the glass may change the perceived color of the glass in the finished product.) Flat metal punchouts are great for garden stepping stones. Wildlife garden (or other trade) tools and zodiac are all possible themes. Small colored stones could be used to make the constellations. Some garden stepping stone basics make sure you can get the finished stone out of the form by lining it with plastic wrap (rememberwrinkles may show or the plastic become trapped in the stone) or using a nonstick spray; make the stone 34 inches thick so it can stand up to traffic; let it dry for several days before you remove it from the form.
