Lively steps

August 30, 2007|Lisa Boone and Craig Nakano

It's hot -- too hot to do much in the garden right now, as late summer heat and dry Santa Ana winds make planting an impractical proposition. But muster enough energy, and you can take one step in the right direction with a new pathway.

Hit the stores or hop online, and you'll find a surprising array of steppingstones -- offbeat designs that provide an alternative to the usual concrete, stone and faux-stone pavers.

Here we've gathered a variety of nontraditional choices in a range of materials. Just remember to ask yourself if you're looking for garden art or functional pieces -- something that will endure your daily footsteps once fall planting season arrives.
