How to Make Leaf-Shaped Pavers
Create a one-of-a-kind garden path by making sand molds with oversize leaves—like the rhubarb here—and casting the shapes in concrete
Plan how many you’ll need by pacing your yard, so the stones will more or less match your stride. To settle them into the soil, use a sharp blade to cut around each one, and excavate about 3 inches. To stabilize the roughly 2-inch-thick stones, backfill with a layer of pea gravel, then of sand. Though you can paint the stones, coating the porous concrete with a clear masonry sealer lets each leaf’s veining be the star.
