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.
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.
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.
