Creating a Stepping Stone Path Using Concrete Forms

A garden pathway makes a beautiful addition to your yard, but laying one from stone or brick can take a lot of work. The Quikrete Walkmaker uses a form to allow you to pour your own concrete walkway which has the look and feel of stone or brick.

Follow these steps to create a stepping stone path using concrete forms. We used Quikrete‘s WalkMaker forms.

  1. Smooth, level and compact the ground on which it will be poured.
  2. Lay out the forms in the space to determine the proper spacing and arrangement.
  3. Mix the concrete. The concrete should be thin enough to flow into the forms easily but not so soupy that it takes forever to dry.
  4. Spray the form with a lubricant, like dry silicone, and check it with a level while it’s in position.
  5. Shovel the concrete into the form. Use a trowel or screed board to spread the mix over the form surface, working it down into the openings and smoothing the surface.
  6. After the form is full, tap gently around all sides with a hammer to release any air bubbles.
  7. As soon as each form is full, carefully remove it and move on to the next one.
  8. Use a trowel to clean up around any rough edges.
