Rounded tactile pebbles and slate in earthy shades produce natural-looking effects and appealing textures that will add interest to any stretch of lawn.

You will need

  • 2-3cm diameter pebbles
  • Slate chippings
  • A bag of ready-mixed cement
  • 26 litre tub trug
  • Pieces of steel mesh large enough to fit base of tub trug

Mix the cement according to the instructions. Put a smooth layer of the mix over the bottom of the trug.

Place a piece of mesh on top of the cement then add another layer of the mixture.

Press the pebbles into the cement to form a pattern.
