Another option is to play with different colors. Different stone types will surely encompass a complete palate of colors among stepping stones in your area or can alternately be painted to match your garden accessories or the colors of your home. You can even make personalizing these stones a fun family activityallowing each one of your children their own personal stone making a mark and truly putting your familys personality into your backyard decor. If youre not particularly crafty and would like more creative looking stones there are other stones for sale that incorporate mosaiclike designs or are beautifully painted for your aesthetic enjoyment.
There are various varieties of molds for concrete available in the market and they vary greatly in shapes sizes material used and so on. Different patterns to suit everyones taste are available in the market and new designs are created by the day. You are sure to find the kind you are looking for. Whether its a leaf design a fish pattern some flowery pattern rock pattern sun moon or stars or anything that your imagination may have is available in concrete stepping stone molds.
The first option can be used to enhance an old fence added to the outside of your house or even as a free standing piece of artwork. Here is where it gets fun and creative you can make anything that you love. I personally love flowers and on my deck is a flower garden with some of them as tall as seven feet. I found the flower designs I wanted created a template out of paper traced around it onto MDF board (you can use 3/8 or ½ thick). You can also free hand a design remember the sky is the limit to what you create. Use a skill saw and cut out your design clean off the edges and remove any excess saw dust.
