Make a Cobblestone Path

Updated:2013-11-07 16:47:01
Cobblestone pathways are rustic options for outdoor spaces. These paths are composed of cobblestones in a variety of sizes and colours, which are arranged sparingly throughout the path to create a vibrant and decorative walkway. Creating a cobblestone pathway is a rather simple process that can be completed in a couple days and enjoyed for several years.

Instructions as follows:

                                                               

Firstly, outline the desired pathway. If the path does not exist, measure a distance of at least 3 feet wide. Place wood markers along the route, spaced 3 feet apart. Once all the markers are set out, wrap string around the entire path, closing it in completely.
Secondly, dig up the pathway with a shovel. Remove soil to a depth of 6 inches along the entire cobblestone walkway. Do not remove the stringed markers as these will be used to keep others off the stone pathway as it sets.
Thirdly, mix cement in a large bucket and fill in the entire pathway, leaving approximately 1 inch of depth unfilled. Smooth the cement and allow it to set for one hour.
Fourthly, press cobblestone into the cement throughout the entire path. Press the stone directly into the cement, leaving 1/2 to 1 inch of the stone exposed above the cement. Continue to add stones until there is very little cement showing through, which appears to be a grout line for the stones. Allow the cement to dry for 24 hours.
Fifthly, remove the marker sticks and strings once the cement is dry.
Tips and warnings
If you desire a more natural appearance, use sod, pebbles or soil instead of cement mix.
