The Random Stepping Stones are a reconstituted stone product, now made in Shropshire, in the UK. Perfect for creating a winding path through the garden. The frog shape was inspired by the traditional stepping stones used in ancient Japanese gardens, associated with creating a space of calm and tranquillity. Therefore, a popular choice amongst many UK gardeners.
Available in two colours. Pale Cotswold (pale yellow), and a Matured Cotswold (pale yellow with grey shades).*
*NEW IMPROVED COLOUR* introduced October 2020. New colour is very similar to the previous colour, but may have slight shade variations if matching with previous orders. Previously this product was made by Lonstone based in Oxfordshire, but is now made by Westminster Stone in their factory in Shropshire.
Up to 500mm x 400mm. Thickness 34mm
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.
Japanese garden- use the irregular stepping stones set within decorative aggregates and ornamental planting. Ideal for a crossing through a decorative pond, raise out of the water so that only the surface edges are visible.
