  • Box cutter
  • Straight edge ruler optional for ease of cutting
  • 3-inch foam brush


  • 10 piece concrete paver
  • Faux grass
  • 1 indoor/outdoor turf adhesive


  • Cut a 12"x12" square from the astroturf to fit perfectly over top of the stone.
    You can use the straight edge to do so. But we found laying the turf along the edge of the stone and using that as our straight edge was better for me. Be sure to clean up the edges as much as possible, because once you glue it down there's no going back!
  • Use a foam brush to smear a very thick layer of glue on the stone and then lay the turf over top and press down.
    You'll want the edges to be firmly glued down too, but try not to let the glue go too far to the edge to where the glue spills over. It doesn't dry clear, and you won't be able to get it off later.
  • Once your garden stones are completed, simply make sure that you have a nice, level place in your garden to place them and enjoy!


  • To clean them, simply use your outdoor water house to and a rake or outdoor cloth to clear off any debris.
  • If needed, you can also use a pressure washer on a low pressure setting to deep clean the garden stones.
