Decorative Stepping Stones

by Giorgina Devereaux





Decorative stepping stones add beauty, charm, and color to your garden or yard. 

They make the perfect accent and are available in a variety of themes, such as birds, flowers, cherubs, inspirational quotes, and colorful mosaics. 

In addition to serving as a decorative item and pathway, decorative stepping stones are functional and can be used to cover areas of the lawn that are worn and need protection from heavy foot traffic. 

This will save your grass from compaction problems while enhancing your garden. 

 

When choosing decorative stepping stones, select ones that feel comfortable to step on.

Consider taking note of the measurements of the stepping stones you are looking to buy and add 6 inches, which will be the distance between them. 

By measuring the distance you want the stepping stones to follow and dividing by the total number of inches you have figured for the stepping stone intervals, you will have the perfect number needed for the ideal placement of the stepping stones.

Make sure that you place the stepping stones on level compacted soil in order to get an evenly placed stone that won’t wobble when stepping on it. 
 

There is something intriguing about stepping stones because of the path that leads to anywhere and the enchanting element they add. 

If they could talk, they could mimic the sounds of birds chirping, bees buzzing, the gentle sway of the wind, the rustle of the leaves, and the torrential downpour of rain. 


Over time, decorative stepping stones made of stone material become a bit aged and take on a spectacular color.
