Stepping Ideas for your Home
Are you looking for great ideas to add beauty to your garden and home?
Stepping stone pathways can be a great addition to your outdoor landscape and can add character to your path or garden. Creating a garden path out of stepping stones is one of the fastest and easiest ways to truly create a look of your own. In addition, stepping stones can come in a variety of sizes and shapes that you can select from. Here are some great stepping ideas for your home.
- Pebbled path
Pebbled pathways can be made from large stepping stones. The pathways are made up of stones bound together by mortar and pebbles. Or you can have small stones pressed into the cement before drying. The moss and other plant life that grows in between the stones gives an electric and natural feel.
- Gravel stepped path
You can create some visual interest and beauty to a sloped garden landscape by making a gravel-stepped pathway. Pea gravel and new or salvaged wood beams are the material that you can use. Level out the gravel or create steps with the beams and fill in with gravel.
- Classic brick
You can use bricks as pavers to make a great looking easy path. This can be done by creating a level surface, lined with a mesh barrier fabric for weed control and adding a shallow level of crushed gravel. Arrange bricks in the pattern of your choice and fill the joints with silica or basalt sand.
- Spaced out stones
Arrange the stones in such a way that you leave room for grass or moss. Or you can interspace with some drought tolerant plants like thyme. Leaving some space between stones allows the beautiful plants or grass to grow and contribute to the natural beauty of a garden walkway.
- Rustic natural stone
Another great stepping idea for your home is to create a more rustic garden walkway by combining different shapes and colours of stones into a richly patterned mosaic. Choose stones that will fit on the pathway. Unlike other stone installations, this pathway does not require any sophisticated equipment.
- A winding walkaway
This requires good planning and choice of stones which must be able to take a circular path. Try embossed garden stepping stones to add a natural decorative touch to your outdoor oasis.
- Simple squares
You can create a simple but distinctive path by placing random-sized paving stones into the lawn. Lay the stones out in the pattern of your choice and use a shovel to outline where the grass will need to be removed. Take away the stones, remove the grass and insert the stones in place
