Hi, I'm Dave Marciniak with Revolutionary Gardens, and today I'll be talking to you about other alternatives than cement than garden stepping stones. We're all familiar with cement and concrete garden stepping stones. They're fine and they get the job done but they're not the most attractive thing in the world. Personally in my landscape designs I love using flagstone. There's a couple different varieties of flagstone that you can use depending on the look and function you're going for. What I use in a lot of my space especially when I'm seeing a lot of use is a rectangular or square cut flagstone. What I recommend to people if it's gonna be a pathway that sees a lot of use get a bigger one. Something like a 2 foot by 2 foot or 2 foot by 3 foot flagstone makes for a really, really comfortable walkway. If it's something that's not gonna see a whole lot of use on a regular basis you can be a little bit more flexible on terms of your size. Irregular flagstone gives a little bit of a more natural look and you can have pieces of all different sizes and it blends really, really well especially with a woodland setting. There's a couple other type of stepping stones that I've seen in use out there. I've seen people sawing the ends off logs and using those and one thing that we've used is rubber tiles. I've seen them used as stepping stones but here you can we actually put a whole bunch of them together and used them as a giant chest board. Again, I'm Dave Marciniak with Revolutionary Gardens and today we been talking about other alternatives than cement for garden stepping stones.
