Slide 2:

If you want to add an element of hardscaping to your garden, there are some fun ways to do it. Stepping stones create the perfect place for individuals to walk through the gardens without getting muddy or unnecessarily dirty. Not sure how to incorporate stepping stones in your garden? The following are just a few ideas.   If your garden contains rows of flowers, bushes, shrubs or even vegetables, consider lining the rows with the stepping stones. You could lay them close to one another for a more completed sidewalk, or you could space them out as true stepping stones. Because there are various shapes and sizes, you can make the pathways unique to your style and sense of design.

Slide 3:

Another way to incorporate stepping stones is by creating a sort of patio. If there is an area somewhere in your garden that does not contain any plants, that would be the perfect location. Perhaps there is too much shade and you have a hard time growing anything, or perhaps you just haven’t gotten around to it. Instead of growing more plants, lay a patio of multi-shaped and multi-colored stones. Make the area as level as possible and put a table and chairs set out there for your enjoyment and relaxation.   Stepping stones can also be used in a garden as a level area to place a pot. Changing up the landscape with an occasional pot can be a fun element of design. Rather than just placing it in the dirt where it could tip over, level the ground and place a stone there. Your pot will be more secure that way and could provide you with many more years of enjoyment.

Slide 4:

If you want a water feature among your greenery, stepping stones can help you create the space. You may want some help from a professional who can show you how to lay it all out effectively, but there are various ways to arrange stones for a water feature. Consider a pond, a little stream or a small waterfall and lay the stones in a way that will encourage good flow of water. You may even figure out a way to water certain areas of the garden with your feature.   As you can see, there are some fun ways to incorporate stepping stones in your garden. Whether you are starting from scratch or improving what you’ve already got, take some time to consider how to make your garden the most beautiful and efficient.
