Hi, I'm Daniel Penselin, and this is how to lay landscaping stones. The things you will need: a shovel, gloves, soil, landscaping stones and a rake. First, figure out where you want to lay the stones. Take into account the visual impact of the stone and the type of soil that stones will sit on. Choose the type of landscaping stones that will look best in the space. Prepare the ground by removing turf, plant material and debris with a shovel or other garden tools. Rake the entire area to smooth it out. Make the ground where you will install landscape stones slightly lower than the surrounding area. This will help the stones stay in place and prevent movement. Rearrange them if needed to create the look you desire. And that is how you lay landscaping stones.
