Stepping Stone / July 5, 2018 / Christine
Our yards may seem like welcoming territory but they can certainly give off a friendlier messagewith a gorgeous and unique lookfinding stepping stones at home improvement stores in your area. Stones are a great natural material to use in your yard and can be highly versatile given the various different types of stone available.
Place the stones the length of your path so that they are a comfortable stepping distance apart and then start setting them into the gravel. Pea gravel is easy to dig so you can simply use your hands to scoop out a hole for each stonethen push down on the stone with both hands and wiggle it downward into the gravel until it is stable. Remember to wear work gloves and steel toed shoes when handling these heavy stoneslift with your legs not your back. Thats pretty much it. You now have an attractive durable weed resistant path which you can enjoy for many years to come.
So go ahead and buy yourself some Polyurethane Rubber concrete molds. You will see how much you can experiment with the various stone molds designs and will find making your own concrete stones and paving adds greatly to your sense of accomplishment in the way you make you beautify your pathways and garden. Making your own stepping stones is actually quite easy a bit messy and a lot of fun. Its a wonderful outside family craft for a warm seasonal day. Crafting a personalized handprint and/or footprint stepping stone for each child parent and even the pets will not only add charm to your garden path but also become prized keepsakes.
