Laying stepping stones on non-flat surface
Instructions about laying stepping stones assume a perfectly flat surface: dig out a hole, put down some sand, level it, then put in the stone and level the stone, making sure it is level with the surface of the ground or, depending on the use, just below or just above the surface.
No one seems to anticipate those of us whose property is not flat. My yard has slopes, bumps, raised and lowered areas, etc. How would I go about putting in a stepping stone path through this landscape? I mainly need it to get to certain parts of the yard without stepping on the plants. (There is already a winding path with wood chips, but there are some areas that I can't access directly from the path.)
