Making your own garden path is easy and saves you money! You may wonder why using a mold is better than buying ready-made pavers. Using a mold to make concrete pavers is a fun and easy way to create your own unique walkway or patio. It gives you complete freedom of thought to create a pattern on your lawn. Design your own beautiful and inexpensive path around your house to give your family a pleasant surprise. It’s an excellent project for creative thinkers, and a cost-effective solution for your yard or garden.

You will need:

  Preparation (for one paver: 9 pounds (4 kg) of cement and 26 pounds (12 kg) of sand, water). Spatula or other suitable tool Mold: I bought mine on Amazon. Price: US $26.03  
If you want to create a car port, you must first prepare a concrete base and smooth it.

Let’s start!

Wet the mold with water before you begin adding concrete. Set the mold on the ground or a pre-prepared concrete surface. With a bucket or trowel, fill each cavity of the mold with concrete. The concrete should not be too liquid. Gently remove excess with a spatula or other suitable tool. Then you should wait about 20 min. After that, carefully remove the mold.  
Butt the mold against the first section and continue building your walkway. By rotating the mold one-quarter turn each time, you create a variation in the pattern. Note: Clean the concrete garden molds for reusing, spray them with garden hose. Garden stone mold can be used again right after you pour the first garden stepping stone so you do not have to wait.
After hardening, the cracks between the stones can be filled with sand, or even soil to fill with lawn seeds. You can also add a pigment to make your garden path look better.
