Irrespective of what stage of your creative project you’re up to, Stepping Stones are a simple, cost-effective and beautiful addition to your outdoor space.
Stepping stones can make an alluring focal point for any area, with no limit to any design or shape – used strategically you can put together many different effects and designs to complement your home.
Fancy a winding pathway through your front or rear garden, maybe a twisting side path?
If you’ve already got a lot of clean lines, breaking up your outdoors with some Organic shape Stepping Stones will balance out space and can bring a new dimension to your home.
Organic Stepping Stones
Now, these steppers on their own are great, but it pays to add something a little extra when it comes to these round beauties. Let’s level-up the space completely – by using garden pebbles or planting some dichondra plants in between your steppers you can really give life to the area at hand.
In terms of functionality, most stepping stones are very dense and hard-wearing – allowing for functional use which is fit for the outdoor family.
Offering ease of installation, you can lay these pavers on sand or grass without too much fuss.
The dark earth-like features of the Avatar stepping stone makes for a low-maintenance solution (you won’t notice too much dirt or debris build-up on the stone surface)
Stepping stones can be considered the jewellery of a garden, available in all kinds of shapes and sizes, stepping stones breathe a sense of serenity into your outdoors.
If the Bluestone Organic steppers aren’t for you, that’s okay. There are other options, like the one you see below.
This one’s called the Citrine Quartz stepping stone, crafted from a dense and enduring natural stone called Quartzite.
With its mango and mint colour tones, these steppers are bound to lighten up or blend in with most colour schemes and build styles. We think it looks absolutely stunning.
Now, If Organic’s not your thing… Don’t worry, there are alternatives available.
Rectangular Stepping Stones:
There shouldn’t really be any discrepancy on what is a stepping stone and what’s not. Stepping stones are simply stones set apart in a way that makes it efficient for you to walk on without getting dirt on your feet.
So, your options really are endless and only limited by the imagination.
You can use the photo below of one of our client’s projects as a good example, he’s used Raven Black Granite 800x400x30mm pavers as stepping stones and Lava natural pebbles to fill the gaps in between.
Not only is this stone extremely functional and hard-wearing – it’s a true thing of beauty. Wouldn’t you agree?
The benefit of the Granite material used is it’s high slip resistance, low maintenance and it’s dark in colour (Hides unwanted dirt well and doesn’t need to be cleaned too often)
If black’s not your colour of choice. There are many other options to choose from.
See a few more below.
