Stepping stones


By Kornos

We are finding it difficult to find stepping stones (ie round natural or terracotta colour stones as opposed to slabs or paving) we want to place them down our lawn from top left corner at the foot of the decking steps in a slight curve to finish at the bottom of the lawn more or less central leading onto the path. We are in the Bromley/Croydon area any ideas where we can find some to blend in with our garden see photo.




Most garden centres used to stock round stepping stones but there was always a problem with them - they weren't riven, and were very slippery in the wet, which is just when you want to use them, of course. Terracotta's even worse for slippiness, so whatever you end up buying, make sure it's riven and not completely smooth.

Sorry I couldn't tell you where to get them, though. Have you tried larger builders' merchants as well as garden centres?
