You will need a good sealer to make the board water proof go to your local paint or hardware store and get their opinion on the best product for your area. When you apply the sealer play close attention to the edges make sure they are completely sealed. I always use two to three coats. Now the fun begins start painting. You can use any water based paint in any color choice you want. I usually put a couple coats of paint especially the base color.
The possibilities are endless so have fun choosing your garden statues and finding the best place for them in your lawn and garden. Stepping stones are another great way to add a personal touch to your backyard. You can use them functionally as actual paths to walk on or you can use them to purely decorate an area that may be difficult to do anything else with. Garden stones are great because they are so easy to decorate with; you just place them where you want them and thats it youre done. You can put stepping stones right in the grass to make a path or in an already landscaped area of rock or wood chips. Either way stepping stones are surely easy to deal with.
