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.
Making your own stepping stones is an easy and inexpensive solution. It protects your lawn from erosion caused by foot traffic. And it’s decorative too!
Stepping stones are not only functional. This simple project allows you to create unique stepping stones to match your personality, home, or garden.
You can even get the kids involved with this project. The steps in making stepping stones are very simple that even kids can participate, making their own personalized stepping stones that come in the shapes and colors they desire.
