Granite stones for garden/yard walkway?
dangelili

Ive come by some left over granite stones cut pieces...
and I was wondering about ideas to use them as stepstones maybe...
Any ideas on how to use left over granite for the garden / yard area? Also any pictures of anyone that has used granite in garden would be helpfull! Thanks! :)

I kind of like this idea and gives the kids something to climb on as well.
Oh, if the kids plan to go to the top I would suggest pbj’s, fruit and water as well.

I'm assuming you don't have enough to build a mountain as nec suggests. are they rough granite stones or are they cut from granite slabs with a polished side. if this is the case buy a diamond blade from your local hardware and cut them to a desired shape (i.e. square octogon or triangle) so that they will fit like paving stones and work them the same as using paving stones. if they are rough stones then simply dig holes to place them as stepping stones either in a straight line or staggered left, right, left, so that with each foot fall it lands on a stepping stone.
