That is a great idea too. One brave lady from our garden club organized several stepping stone sessions.She used plastic plant trays as moulds. It was alot of fun to decorate like you did, Austinram. Definitely need some muscle power to to lift and mix the concrete. What did you use as a mould?
Hi Austin...glad you got your own DG account! You need to post some pictures of your garden as you get it going. Love the stones that are handmade, they last so much longer than those chalky ones you buy.
From Garden gate Magazine i can send it as an attch in regular e mail I am pretty sure it is copyrighted but we are not profiting by this exchange of ideas and I was a paying subscriber..Liked the mag but it go too much about the Northeast (sorry Carrie) for my uses,but still a great read ..
Austin, do any of the embedded materials (stones, pebbles, glass, etc) get slippery when wet? Since I have a large yard with a long walk to the alley, AND I don't have a sidewalk or any hardscaping (yet), I would kinda like to know if 'slippery when wet'. Thanks. Love your work!
Tx flower child: I am very I am so late answering your question. The answer to your question is I push the pebbles, stones, etc. down enough so that it is almost but not quite level with the cement. (Sticking up a little). I try to make sure that they aren't slippery when wet. Haha.
I am going to attempt stepping stones Austin... my issue is getting the cement the right consistency. I already bought a bag of cement & tried using it to anchor something but someone was able to dislodge the stone so I am wondering if I did n't add enough to make it stronger!
I've done mosaics on a table but never an actual stone so I am excited about doing one...when it's warmer of course!!! hahahahahaha
