A stepping stone path is an inexpensive and elegant way to add finish off your outdoor space. Walkways can direct foot traffic from your driveway to your door or sections of the property. You can also use them to connect elements in your back yard.
Take the style of your home into account when choosing your materials. Try to mimic their look, texture, and color. The path should be congruent in appearance with nearby elements.
Choose stepping stones with texture so they won’t get slippery. And remember that dark colors absorb sunlight, which makes them hard on bare feet when it’s hot.
Popular materials are gravel, stone, concrete pavers, clay pavers, mortar, mulch and poured concrete, etc.
If you want a striking, natural effect, ask your landscaper about planting decorative plants between the blocks. These can include creeping thyme, dichondra, dymondia or Irish Moss.
