Stepping Stone / July 5, 2018 / Christine.
The first thing you will need to do is lay out the shape of your pathgarden hose works great for this. Tip: gently curved lines are usually more visually appealing than angular or straight lines. Once you have decided the shape and length of your path use the sod cutter to cut along the edges of your path to define the outer lines.
From their original use as a functional yet decorative way to delineate a path through ornamental gardens stepping stones are now considered a part of the garden. Commercially there are almost endless themes available to suit any taste or interest come in a variety of shapes and sizes even 3 dimensional. There is also the option of making your own garden stepping stones for an even more personal touch. There are ready made molds available or you can almost any container you may have that is the right size and shape for what you wish to make; just make sure the container is the same size or smaller at the bottom or you may never get your completed treasure out.
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.
Another form of garden statues youll find are the very popular cherub(s) statues and little boy/girl statues. These garden statues are popular because they are so cute and welcoming. You can add them anywhere in your garden and they are sure to look inviting. Some other fun forms of garden statues can be Disney characters solar light statues and figurines frogs and other kinds of wild life statues. Some garden statues come in the form of welcome signs or yard markers (for example by the mailbox the corners of the driveway etc.).
