Stepping Stone / July 5, 2018 / Christine
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.
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.
Stepping stones are unavoidable accents in any parks and gardens. Their application gives many functions both for beauty and for safety. Rubber stepping stones are the same but they are another story. People may want stepping stones that are different from any other stones applied in their neighbors or their friends home. They just want something more unique with a combination of beauty and functions.
