Stepping Stone / July 5, 2018 / Christine
A personalized stepping stone with highquality engraving is a unique personal gift that will add to a gardens ambiance for years ahead. To create a piece of art that will be forever part of a garden consider your recipients interests beyond gardening. If your intended loves to read a quote by Dickinson or Frost is in order. If the familys faithful feline hangs out in the garden an engraved cat silhouette pays tribute to this gardening assistant. (Every chipmunk chased away is a lily flower saved.) Golfing fanatics will smile when receiving a series of stones with birdie fore and Hole in One engraved into them.
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.
Stepping stones come in different sizes and materials. They are often made of concrete natural stone resin and/or polyresin. Some garden stones come versatile with a hook to hang as a plaque. You may choose to do this when choosing decorative stepping stones. For example some decorative stepping stones come with a beautifully painted picture of hummingbirds or butterflies on them. When using these decorative stepping stones for your backyard you may want to consider using them for decorative purposes only or where they will be stepped on very little.
