Then I laid out the stones. Some were 6"x9" and others were 6"x6" which allowed me to create rectangular shapes with sets of 4 paving stones. Ideally I would have also laid out some sort of landscaping fabric to keep weeds down then put sand over top to level it but I didn't have either of those handy. I ended up just laying it down on bare level soil. Any stones that were not level were lifted and fixed up underneath to level them either by adding soil or removing soil. Simple!

Then I merged the stones with a larger stepping stone that I had used there before. I put the stepping stone in line with the stone borders in the front garden area and completely merged the sidewalk garden and the front porch garden borders with a slight curve.

It took about and hour and a half to complete this project from start to finish. Of course I had a couple good helpers!
Now the sidewalk entrances are ready for walking!
