Stepping Stones and Rock Pathways | Herb Gardening For Beginners

· 2 Comments · Yard Art

What better way to get to your herbs than stepping stones. Whether you pick flag stone or use cleaver home made stones a garden path adds texture.

You can also find stepping stone molds. I have located some really good ones online. Look for flexible molds that you can use over and over gain. They run from $6.00 to to $60.00.

While you are at it look for sundial molds. Making your own stepping stones is such an easy project you will want to make some for gifts. It is also a great kids project.

We usually tackle this project late in the fall, after all of the gardening is done. Because of frost we have to keep our new cement projects in the shop until they cure.

Have fun being creative!

    I really enjoy the different looks that stepping stones give to a garden area. We have used some large flat rocks to create some stairs that pass from the front of our flowerbed to the back. we have found a few really great things to plant around the rocks that fill in nicely. The first is lemon thyme. It is very fragrant and does well in full sun. I brush my hand across it as I pass by and it releases the fragrance. Also, we found a section at the nursery for ground cover. Anything with a “step-on” tag works great. This ground cover is hardy and holds up to some foot traffic. If you have kids running around, it’s perfect.

    I like it when the nurseries make it easy to choose what plants work best. The “step-on” tags do take out the guess work.
