Mosaic, the walk-in work of art in the garden, literally makes you stony. One step smaller, but no less beautiful, are homemade stepping stones that adorn former trails.

You need that for the pattern

  • light and dark pebbles
  • mumble
  • Tile shards and glass decorative stones
  • Template made of cardboard in the shape of a flower

You need that for the concrete bed

  • spatula
  • Granite curbs
  • Concrete mixer (borrowable in hardware store)
  • Ready-mixed concrete (finest grain)
  • water
  • Boards for boarding

The sidewalk

Walk on a sidewalk made of colorful stones. Concrete is poured in front of it. You can let your imagination run wild when placing the mosaic stones.

1. Create the foundation

The mosaic needs a stable substructure. If you have to create a new route, first select the outline. Then remove 20 centimeters of earth, fill half with gravel and step on. Mix the concrete and fix the curbs. Use planks to divide the path into one-square-meter sections.

2. Pour concrete

Are all utensils ready? Then mix concrete for the first section and pour in up to the top edge of the curbs - at least six centimeters. You have one hour for the pattern.

3. Put stones

For each motif, first lay outlines and centers, then fill the area. The repeating flower pattern succeeds with the crafted template.

4. Complete the work

Use a sponge to repair areas where the concrete is unevenly distributed. Once blemishes have been eliminated, the building material has hardened and stones have been cleaned. Now you admire your work.
