Step Aside to the Side Yard

Many of us neglect the side yard of our homes or if it is like mine, on the north side of the house, sloping or a rut in the middle…it’s easier to just rush by and not really notice that area.  I also have drainage issues when it rains so I keep trying to come up with low-labor intensive plans.

I don’t really want to rent a piece of equipment to level the ground so my best bet is stepping stones and smaller stones.  I found a nifty plan at Lowe’s that incorporates what is already there and  has instructions.  I thought this was such a nice looking and pretty easy transformation I wanted to share it.

Did I mention it’s also green?  I particularly like the idea of making and decorating my own stepping stones.  Take a look at the pictures and use the instructions if you like the look of this path.
