Stepping stones will make you creative.
There are so many ways in which you can create pathways in your garden. One of my favorite ones is by using pebbles and arranging them like a mosaic. Go outside and collect as many pebbles as you can, or just buy them if you don’t want to bother. Then, take some time to relax while you create some wonderful designs which will amaze everyone.
This is what I mean when I say that these DIY projects spark your creativity. Sometimes the things that you need to create the stepping stones are all around you. These gigantic leaves when paired with some concrete will give you outstanding garden pathways with stepping stones.
Stepping stones will dress up your garden.
Did you know that stepping stones can dress up your garden as just plants and flowers do? When a bare lawn gets interesting and defined walking zones, it immediately becomes more polished and beautiful. This is especially true if you use stones in different colors that will give the pathways texture. Don’t you think that the pathways below are the focal points in the gardens? I strongly believe that they are!
They have health benefits.
Yes, stepping stones have proved to have tons of health benefits. Walking barefeet on the uneven stones can stimulate your feets’ relax points. In this way you will improve circulation and balance, improve digestion, reduce stress, physical pain and tension.
