Experiment with different shapes patterns or perhaps a mix and match a variety of sizes or types of stone for a fun look.
Decoration for these stones is limited only by your imagination. From a simple hand or paw print (name and date optional) up to a recreation of your favorite piece of art made out of shattered teacups your inner artist can run wild. Even photographs can be used simply put it between 2 sheets of glass and seal the edges with silicone. When using glass as decoration for your stones it is best to place the glass in the container first laying it out as you wish it to be in the finished product then carefully pour the concrete over it; this way there will be no sharp exposed areas.
Place the stones the length of your path so that they are a comfortable stepping distance apart and then start setting them into the gravel. Pea gravel is easy to dig so you can simply use your hands to scoop out a hole for each stonethen push down on the stone with both hands and wiggle it downward into the gravel until it is stable. Remember to wear work gloves and steel toed shoes when handling these heavy stoneslift with your legs not your back. Thats pretty much it. You now have an attractive durable weed resistant path which you can enjoy for many years to come.
