Making Stepping Stones

At the Whitinger Farm, we are busy making stepping stones for a walkway between our driveway and the house. It's an ambitious project and we've already made dozens of stones. By popular request, here is the tutorial on how we're making them.

I've always wanted to do that and with 8 bags of concrete sitting in the garage, you may have inspired me to use them next year.
Great tutorial and the results are fantastic.

I do have a question. Howdeep are the molds? 2 inches?

Hi Julia,

I'm guessing on this, but our molds are about 2 inches high. They are about twice as thick as the stepping stones you see in the gardening departments at the big box stores.

That's probably thicker than they needed to be, but I wanted something big, strong and heavy for a very high-traffic pathway.

Sounds like you've got a project coming up! Share pictures!
