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.
When using shaped objects (such as pebbles) where you dont want them buried in the concrete but would like an even surface after placing them on top of the stone cover with a piece of wood larger than the stone and press evenly. It may take a few tries to figure out the right pressure but the professional look will add to its attractiveness. Besides pathways your garden stepping stones can be used as points for a sundial to ring a tree as wall or raised bed decorations even tabletops or to line small pools and fountains.
