Design ideas

Winding garden path- use the Japanese stepping stones to create a random winding path through a covered rose walkway, or sunk into the garden lawn.  Allow the grass to just cover the edges and rotate the stones to create a random appearance.

Dry garden borders- the stepping stones can be set randomly within a gravel border, mixed up with pebbles and cobbles.  Use planting that does not require regular watering such as cactus and various grasses.
