Keeping in mind where they are laid and what is going to be laid around them, e.g. pebbles vs grass, stepping stones can be easily installed in a variety of settings, including over water. Ensure you’re contacting a professional to get the job right from the get-go.
Stepping stones, no matter if organic shaped or cut as pavers, can be easily surrounded by pebbles, a classic combination that it’s easy to maintain, grass, fake grass, gravel or any type of green groundcover.
Traditionally laid as a pathway, they can also be used as a decorative feature across a garden or as a transition format if the same material is then used across the site e.g. pavers, stepping stones and crazy paving.
