Creating a mosaic pathway is a DIY-friendly project that dresses up your pathways and adds colour to your exterior decor. Visit your local home improvement centre and view the size and colours of river rock available. Base your mosaic pathway design on your colour choices and buy extra river rock so you don't run out before you complete your project.

Draw your mosaic pattern on paper.
Purchase several bags of river rock and sort them by colour. Take out rough edged rocks to avoid anyone getting hurt when walking on the pathway.
Dig out the pathway to a depth of 3 inches.
Edge your pathway with bender board or landscape edging. Use wooden stakes to hold the bender board or landscape edging into position.
Pour wet cement into your pathway and smooth it with a trowel. Make sure the centre of the pathway is very slightly above the two sides so water runs off the pathway and doesn't sit on the surface.
Press the river rocks into the wet cement in your mosaic pattern. Make sure the river rocks are pressed down so they're even with the surface of the cement. If the rocks are too high, it can make your path dangerous and difficult to walk on. Continue this process until your mosaic pathway is complete.
