Stepping Stone / July 5, 2018 / Christine.
After the rain it will be dangerous walking on the grass as it becomes wet and slippery. The stones are helpful as we can step on them to avoid walking on the grass. They also ensure our kids safety when they are playing on our garden as they will not fall because of the wet ground. Their feet will keep clean when they enter the home and step on the floor. Do you ever imagine having moveable stones? If so why do not you consider rubber stepping stones? This kind of stepping pads is extremely lightweight so you can move it to any parts of garden you desire.
You cannot do this with ones made of cement as they are usually permanently installed on the ground. With the rubbers you can arrange the space between one to another based on the length of your kids steps. When they have grown up and the steps become longer you can rearrange this. Rubber stepping stones also come in many models and colors. The diameter is usually about 30 centimeters or more and the thickness is about 3 cm. Each package usually contains of three pieces so you can freely decide how you will arrange the stones. With your own creativity you can combine several patterns to get more dynamic look. Then see your guests like it.
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.
