Stepping Stone / July 5, 2018 / Christine
These stones can be used anywhere that could use a little color. Pick out the size and shape stone you like and one that fits your area the best. Remember you can put these little jewels in your garden areas as well. I suggest you use the concrete colored stones it is easier to cover with the paint. The first step is to use an exterior primer to seal the stone. Very important note seal only the top of the stone do not seal the entire stone. It needs a place for the moisture to come out. If you seal the bottom it will crack.
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.
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.
