Explore lots of different textures with these unusual outdoor stepping stones
What you need
A collection of sturdy, shallow containers or old car tyres; different substances for filling the boxes/tyres; tape measures; spade and trowel.
What to do
- Set a series of shallow containers or tyres into your grass to make stepping stones. Measure the width, length and depth of the boxes/tyres and cut similar sized holes in the turf so the boxes fit snugly.
- Ensure that the edges of the containers are flush with the grass so that people can’t trip over them. If you do not have a grassy area take extra care when placing and using your containers – but don’t let it put you off.
