How to Make A Stepping Stone Paver Walkway
Keep a tricky area of your yard looking lush and established. Set pavers into turf to create a mower-friendly path that prevents rain runoff.
Absorbing rainwater into a lawn is a common objective for homeowners—and a priority for many cities. But concrete sidewalks force rainwater to run off, rather than letting it percolate into the soil. Pavers set in turf are a quick solution: They allow water to sink into the surrounding soil and provide a clean, dry place to step—also protecting the lawn from heavy foot traffic. As a bonus, your mower glides right over the tops. Use an assortment of staggered shapes, go with a straight line, or create your own design. Sticking with square or rectangular pavers rather than circular ones makes the installation go more quickly.
Editor's Tip: A few days before you begin any digging project, call 811 or visit call811.com. A locator service will come and mark the position of underground utility lines in the work area.
