Stepping Stone / July 5, 2018 / Christine
Every gardener loves accessorizing her garden. Whimsical or formal sentimental or practical garden ornaments complete a garden by further extending the gardeners personality beyond plant selection. Trellises gazing balls wind chimes and bird baths are traditional offerings. As families landscape more of their yards creating nooks and crannies for enjoying the outdoors garden stepping stones have become very popular. The variety of stepping stones is endless. When considering a gift for a gardener think about creating a stepping stone just for them.
You will need a good sealer to make the board water proof go to your local paint or hardware store and get their opinion on the best product for your area. When you apply the sealer play close attention to the edges make sure they are completely sealed. I always use two to three coats. Now the fun begins start painting. You can use any water based paint in any color choice you want. I usually put a couple coats of paint especially the base color.
These stones arent just great as walkways to your porch but also as a great decorative or functional walkway through flower beds or gardens. You dont have to worry about the kids walking through your tulips if they have a useful path that you constructed using gorgeous stepping stones you bought for a very inexpensive price. They require absolutely no upkeep and will add a little variety to your garden with very little effort.
