Stepping Stone / July 5, 2018 / Christine
How many times have you frowned on someone as they walk on your beautifully laid garden grass? But is it really their fault or do you need garden steppingstones so that your kids and anyone else walking through your garden can enjoy its beauty without spoiling it. Garden steppingstones can be a great way to preserve your garden grass along with adding a touch of class to your garden as well. But getting garden pavers from the market can be an expensive business. You may end up spending a lot for a few stones and getting them fixed too will cost a lot. Especially if the range you bought are discontinued. You may also have a tough time also finding the right kind of stones that may suit your garden or lifestyle.
Place the stones the length of your path so that they are a comfortable stepping distance apart and then start setting them into the gravel. Pea gravel is easy to dig so you can simply use your hands to scoop out a hole for each stonethen push down on the stone with both hands and wiggle it downward into the gravel until it is stable. Remember to wear work gloves and steel toed shoes when handling these heavy stoneslift with your legs not your back. Thats pretty much it. You now have an attractive durable weed resistant path which you can enjoy for many years to come.
There however is an easy way out. Just make your own garden concrete products at home. Yes dont be alarmed. It is a great way to get your kind of concrete products without spending much. Making your own stepping stones can be a great hobby and you can even get your kids involved and have a great time with them. Your molds will be used to shape the stone according to your style and design in mind. And you can produce as much as you like and all the while knowing that you can always ad to your existing paving or stepping stone areas. Also your stone or paving range will never be discontinued as you own the paving molds or stepping stone concrete molds.
