Stepping Stone / July 5, 2018 / Christine.
Garden statues and stepping stones can do a whole lot to your backyard space or your garden. When planning a garden or landscaping makeover consider using garden stones and statues. They come in many different forms shapes sizes and colors. Here you will learn of different kinds of garden statues and ways to incorporate those and garden stones in your garden or backyard to enhance your lawn décor overnight. Some popular garden statues you see are garden gnomes. Many gnomes are silly little old men doing things such as mowing the lawn sleeping in the grass while while working or holding their grandbaby in his arms. Garden gnomes are a great way to add some color and humor.
The first option can be used to enhance an old fence added to the outside of your house or even as a free standing piece of artwork. Here is where it gets fun and creative you can make anything that you love. I personally love flowers and on my deck is a flower garden with some of them as tall as seven feet. I found the flower designs I wanted created a template out of paper traced around it onto MDF board (you can use 3/8 or ½ thick). You can also free hand a design remember the sky is the limit to what you create. Use a skill saw and cut out your design clean off the edges and remove any excess saw dust.
A lighted solar stepping stone adds light as well as beauty to any home. They are easy to install and useful when having an outdoor party or going for a midnight swim. The lighted solar stepping stone provides enough light to see even on the darkest nights. These stones can also be used to illuminate a garden to make it noticeable even in the dark. This is a nice touch when throwing a patio party or a family gathering. The garden will look alive and beautiful with the lighted solar stepping stone.
When choosing stepping stones for the sole purpose of walking on from a day to day basis then you might want to choose stepping stones that are smoother on the surface than the pretty textured and painted ones to avoid damaging them. Incorporating stepping stones with garden statues in your backyard is easy and easy to maintain. No watering no staining no maintenance. Once the stepping stones and garden statues are in their places youre done. You can now enjoy the beautifully landscaped garden you have always wanted for little or no upkeep at all.
