Before you install the gravel it is a good idea to put down a weed barrier of some sortold newspaper works great for thisjust put it over the whole path area in a layer two or three sheets thick. Next evenly distribute the pea gravel over the entire area of your path and rake it out smooth filling the path back up to ground level. With your gravel now in place its time to start placing your stepping stones. There are many choices for stones. You can choose from a variety of manmade products or use natural flagstone.
If there is sod to remove from your path area use the sod cutter to cut a checkerboard pattern inside the borders of the path dividing the sod into approximately 1 squares (for easy removal). Next remove the sod and soil to a depth of about 4. Now that you have your path excavated its time for the pea gravelthis can be purchased at your local landscape firm or at a crushed rock supplier. Pea gravel is a product made up of small rounded stones which is easy to spread and easy on the body if you fall.
