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.
To bring more pizzazz to an otherwise bland garden why not add a couple of garden stepping stones? You have got to admit we all have felt the need to improve the look of our home. The garden not exempted. An easy way to bring life and add a landscaping feel would be to install decorative garden stepping stones. Great news though garden stepping stones are fairly easy to make. Materials arent hard to find. And to top it all off this home project of yours can easily turn into a fun and exciting activity to do with the kids.
Personalized stepping stones make great gifts for nongardeners as well. Commemorate special occasions by having a stepping stone engraved. Celebrate a new birth with the newborns name and date. Help new couples remember their wedding and a proud bowler his first perfect game. Engraved stepping stones in landscape beds near a houses front door tell stories of the family inside each a reminder of important life events. The gift of an engraved garden stepping stone for a special occasion will be appreciated long after the event and will give the best gift of all. Each time the recipient steps over the stone it will conjure memories of joyous times past.
