Stepping Stone / July 5, 2018 / Christine
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.
Every gardener loves accessorizing her garden. Whimsical or formal sentimental or practical garden ornaments complete a garden by further extending the gardeners personality beyond plant selection. Trellises gazing balls wind chimes and bird baths are traditional offerings. As families landscape more of their yards creating nooks and crannies for enjoying the outdoors garden stepping stones have become very popular. The variety of stepping stones is endless. When considering a gift for a gardener think about creating a stepping stone just for them.
A lighted stepping stone can add the necessary light needed to illuminate walkways around any home. They are inexpensive to install and use the sunlight as an energy source. They are a great way to conserve energy while allowing people to see where they are going. A lighted solar stepping stone can be made to look attractive. They can still be painted to match any outside décor. The stones are usually made of a hard plastic and have light bulbs inside. These stepping stones capture the suns rays and use the energy at nighttime to create light. One can find these stepping stones at many home improvement stores or online.
