If there is sod to remove from your path area use the sod cutter to cut a checkerboard pattern inside the borders of the path dividing the sod into approximately 1 squares (for easy removal). Next remove the sod and soil to a depth of about 4. Now that you have your path excavated its time for the pea gravelthis can be purchased at your local landscape firm or at a crushed rock supplier.

Another feature of a lighted stepping stone is the added sense of security. When people go away on vacation they can feel safer knowing the stepping stone will be turned on to signify that someone may be home even when they are not. This will also allow people to have some light when they return home at night. A lighted solar stepping stone has many purposes in addition to looking attractive. The bulbs inside do not need to be changed often and the stones can capture enough energy to last a few nights even if the sun did not come out that day.
