Creative DIY Garden Stepping Stones


Thinking of buying stepping stones for your yard? Why not create your own!

Wear patterns created by foot traffic are a common backyard problem. This issue becomes more evident when it rains. Erosion results in bare patches that turn into mud when wet.

You can even get the kids involved with this project. The steps in making garden stepping stones are very simple that even kids can participate, making their own personalized garden stepping stones that come in the shapes and colors they desire.
