I want to make stepping stones and I am looking for a cement recipe that is strong and durable. I made a stone for a sister-in-law using diamondcrete which is no longer available, sadly it cracked during a very cold winter. Thanks in advance!

Dear Rene,

Here is one site online that I picked - there are others. There are different recipes to choose from, different weights, see what you think. I haven't made them yet myself.

Don't we all! I still haven't gotten back to making any more!
