How To: Make a Stone Walkway

Make a stone walkway to enhance the curb appeal of your home or to beautify its backyard garden area.


Here are some tips on how to make a stone walkway. After marking the walkway with string, the first step is to lay a foundation of stone dust. When it’s leveled, begin laying in the stones. Once they are in place, tap them tight with a hammer and a piece of scrap wood. Finally, sweep the excess dust into the cracks to prevent shifting and ensure a compact fit.
