DIY Stepping Stone Path

by Abi Zimmerman
Have you ever had one of those spaces that says, “Nanner-nanner-boo-boo, you can’t finish me,” every time you pass it? Well this was mine and to make matters worse, it was the first thing I saw when I pulled up to my house each day. If it looks familiar you might remember me writing about it last summer. We’ve battled before – and I lost. So I decided over the long July 4 weekend to pull on my big girl work gloves, pump up the fight music, and kick some grass.

    We have/had a problem on the side just like that. The dog kept running a path there and the grass wouldn't grow. Then it would get muddy and he would bring the mud in the house. I was forever wiping the kitchen floor. We got those concrete molds and made a path. Then I planted along the side of the house. It's one of my favorite spots now! Yours turned out beautiful. And I serious laughed when I read "kick some grass"!

      @Michele Eures Don't you love it when a problem area turns into one of your favorite spots? That's the best.

    Looks great! I have on of those “Nanner-nanner-boo-boo, you can’t finish me,” areas in my back yard! I am slowly fighting back!

      @DeDe @ Designed Decor Seems like we all have at least one of those spaces, doesn't it? Good luck with yours.
