This is a super fun and easy way to create unique pavers for sidewalks and pathways. I’m currently working on a pathway around my house and wanted something heavier and more decorative than the pavers available at the outdoor center.
I did five practice pavers first and experimented with different brands of mortar, cement and rock placement. I didn’t want any of the rocks coming loose or pavers breaking in half in the future. The two large pavers and the small curly one are made out of what I think works best.
I found these plastic gardening trays at my local flower shop. These were so much easier to use than making a wood frame for the paver. The only down side is there’s not a big selection of sizes. If you use a plastic tray, make sure the ends are at 90 degree angles and don’t curve out, so your pavers will sit flush next to each other.
