Hand-made stepping stones can create a beautiful walkway.
Our own garden path stepping stones were made from molds we made ourselves, and feature a fern leaf detail. Now that our garden has matured, the small ground-cover plants are beginning to soften the edges of the path to the gazebo. The mold was made with 1xs lumber, and the design was added by pressing a leaf into the concrete when it’s beginning to thicken, but not yet solid. As the stepping stones age, they look more and more organic, and fit in well with the rest of the garden.
Some people make stepping stones the way we make our concrete leaves, but instead of curving them naturally, they lay the leaf out flat.
You can also get kits to make your own, like this mosaic leaf stepping stone kit we found on Amazon.com.
