You can make a beautiful pathway through your yard or garden using stepping stones. However don't fall into the trap of just plopping the stones down crating an uneven wobbly appearance that even a high wire artist will shy away from. Get yourself a gardening trowel, leveller,a bag of sand and be prepared to get on your hands and knees to eye ball the levelness of your path. First, lay your garden stones in the desired pattern and then surgically dig with your trowel around the perimeter of the first stone and place into the hole until the desired portion of the stone is showing. Fill in the hole with enough sand to make level and sturdy. Repeat this procedure for a secure and scenic walk through your garden.
