Create an intriguing route through the garden with a ‘stepping stone’ pathway. Try using recycled bricks, as shown here, and laying them in an interesting pattern.
Gather your supplies
• Recycled brick pavers (ours were 225 x 110 x 50mm)
• Mortar mix
You’ll also need
Tape measure; set-out paint; shovel; wheelbarrow; brickie’s trowel; flat trowel; rubber mallet; spirit level
Step 1 Use tape measure and set-out paint to mark positions of steppers.
Step 2 Using shovel, excavate soil to depth of 100mm (to accommodate 50mm bed of mortar and 50mm paver). Repeat for each position of stepper
Step 3 Prepare mortar mix in wheelbarrow. Scoop into hole using brickie’s trowel. Use flat trowel to smooth and flatten to a depth of 50mm.
Step 4 Lay pavers in desired pattern (we used basketweave). Gently tap into place with mallet and check level. Use brickie’s trowel to smooth mortar over edge of pavers.
