How can I create a path of stepping stones in my garden?

The best stepping stone path is just a bit crooked.

The quickest point between two points is a straight line and this is exactly what not to do when planning your stepping stone path through your yard or garden. Put plenty of meanering curves that persuade any visitors to stop and admire your gardens beauty. Just don't go overboard with all those curves. Remember it's a path not a maze, put just enough curves to encourage lingering at your gardens prestige spots. Also plant some tall plants at these bends that obscure the final destination. This will give a small garden that expansive garden feel. Enjoy weaving your visitors in and out of your managerie with your stepping stones.
