    Usually Mural stone is the best. You can get different colors, and make a whole different area, by using these stones in harmony. It will be lovely, I assure you. Go to a large hardware store, and look at a book, of stepping stones, and this will help you. They have a lot to suggest and this will benefit you greatly. This will be lovely, and very colorful, I am sure of this. Best wishes, J.

    I create my own out of hypertufa (look on youtube))....I also use a fantastic product called shapecrete...both can be colored with concrete dyes or concrete color powders....I do a lot of mosaic type stones and I use cake pans or pie pans bought at the dollar store for molds or create my own from wood....be careful if you decide to varnsih or glaze as the stones become extremely slippery when wet. both the hypertufa and shapecrete can be used to make wall hangings and planters....you really need to watch some videos on youtube for both products. for different ideas you should google concrete molds....I am particularly fond of the greenman face molds for wall hangings.....hypertufa ends up about 1/3 the weight of concrete...use plaster stencils with either and create detail to your planters...google plaster stencils.....and above all-have fun
