Here's a simple way to keep weeds from growing in your walkways and it's free!
Dig and rake the area where you want to place your path so it is level and looks good. Then lay old newspapers down, overlapping each one until the path is covered. The day I did this, there was hardly any wind blowing....that helps!
If you have old cardboard boxes, break them down and place them on top of the newspaper. Then sprinkle a thick layer of grass clippings or shredded leaves to hold down the paper and cardboard to hide it completely.
Have fun placing your stepping stones. They'll look great from the start and stay that way all through the summer.
