Stepping Stone paths are visually appealing and create a stunning appearance of outdoor areas. They enhance your garden trails or walkways effortlessly. Irregularly shaped stones are randomly laid on concrete or gravel base, serving as stones to walk on. They are ideal for pathways leading to entryways or for perimeters around lawn areas.
Garden Stepping Stones also double up as pavers for non-conventional setups. They are recommended for both residential and commercial properties. Available in a variety of sizes, these stones prevent you from losing balance or getting your feet muddy in the face of water-logged areas. Besides, they are a fantastic way to minimize trampling of lawn.
Our natural Stepping Stones come in Bluestone, Limestone and Granite in round, rectangular and free form, giving you ample opportunities to experiment with the design of your project. These stones evoke joy and fun vibes, unlike any other stone. Easy to lay and a great design statement for outdoors, our Stepping Stones come in different colours and textures.

24. What is the difference between pavers and stepping stones?
Stepping stones and pavers are frequently used in outdoor projects and landscaping, but they have different uses and characteristics that set them apart. Pavers are popularly used for pathways, patios, driveways, walls, fireplaces, pools and other outdoor places that provide a stable surface with heavy foot traffic. Pavers are often constructed to have constant dimensions, are frequently rectangular or square and are uniform in shape, size and thickness. This allows for accurate installation and a tidy, uniform appearance. On the other hand, stepping stones are mostly utilised for pathways or driveways. Usually, they are arranged so people can walk from one stone to the next, making a route across a garden, a lawn or other outdoor spaces. Compared to pavers, stepping stones have a wider variety of shapes, sizes and designs. They may be rounded, asymmetrical or even specially crafted and frequently include additional decorative elements, textures or patterns that enhance the aesthetic attractiveness of the surrounding environment.
