Stepping stone paths and walkways are an excellent opportunity to control the flow of traffic in and around your yard. Make sure you design them to be practical and functional.

Remember that you may have to mow in and around the stone pathway you design, so make your lines clean and easy to follow with a mower.

Also make sure that whatever they do, it is for a purpose. Don't make a lot of curves for no reason. A curve should flow around a tree, shrub or garden (not just because you want a curve).
