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.
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.
