How to Make a Paver and Pebble Pathway
Time Required: Over 1 day
Adding a decorative paver to your walkway is a small enhancement that will make a lasting impact. River rocks or pond pebbles offer a naturally charming touch that will complement any outdoor layout. Discover how to make one from scratch below, and add one to your home this season.
- Measure the space you plan to insert the DIY pavers. You will have to make a mold from wood to accept the ready-mix concrete.
- For our project, we left 1-inch thick, 19 ⅝-inch square unpaved spaces to accept our DIY pathway pavers.
- The size of our pathway paver should be 19½-inch square. Be sure to chisel off the interlock nubs of the surrounding pavers so they don’t impede the one you want to inset.
- Cut two 21-inch and two 19½-inch segments from the 1- x 3-inch x 8-foot board.
- Attach with screws outer edge of the 19 ½-inch square so it is raised an inch above the plywood.
- You have now finished your mold.
