Yesterday we made our very first "flowerbed"... with a japanese lantern (made by a friend of us), some plants like pieris, rhododendhron and other shrubs.
Now we want to add some stepping stones thatin a curved path lead up to the maple and the lantern in the middle.
The length from point A to point B is about 1.5 meter. but we want a curved path. We also plan to add some flat stones under the lantern and raise it up a bit.
Anyway, what KIND of stones should be used to stepping stones. On many pics in our jap-garden books they use something that looks like lime stone or darker stones. Should the stepping stones have a soft surface, or an edgy surface?
any input is appreciated.
