Patio garden

This summer I had a rather large project (for me) to build a patio and garden island . .
This is what it looked like from my pourch steps . . .a whole lot of dirt . .
collecting all the mossy rocks around the yard . . .do you see my kitty napping under the trash can? lol
Almost done with the Island garden . . now the patio . .
I used a cement form to do this . .
A bit like making mud pies . . lol and HOT work!
sanding it . .
I then spray painted the stones . . to give it some real color! And yes it has endured the traffic to the door . .
Another view . .
I added a few little details . . colored stones
I had a few minor mishaps with the kitties and the dog walking on the wet cement . . so I just went with it . .lol

Have a question about this project?

      Lowe's carries the form in the concrete area for a little over $18.00

    So fun with all the colors and additional small stone art pieces in between some of the larger rock forms.
