I've planted many herbs, ground covers and perennials that need attention close enough to each stone to help soften their stark concrete edges. I trim herbs and what-not throughout the growing season, at least giving gaps big enough for my foot to touch down.
|Soil around my Lysimachia nummularia is so fluffy!
I wish I had more patience and came up with other fun choices of stepping material, like:
- used bricks
- bamboo mats
- pre-cast slabs and stones
- mosaic stepping stone kits
Another benefit of using stepping stones: you can place pots in their spots, when the garden becomes full and less foot traffic is necessary.
I'll take comparative photos in late summer to see how little the stones are visible.
