    This is a beautiful idea and so inexpensive! I'm going to make a path to our bbq pit with this idea, thank you!

    I was really hoping to use this idea in my back yard because I think it is so cool! Problem is, my local Home Depot & Lowes don't carry the rock form. Any other ideas as to where I can find it?

    You can get one here:

    Quikrete Walk Maker through Amazon


    or Here:


    From Lowes- have it shipped directly to your local store.

    The price has gone up a few dollars, then again, hasn't everything!

    You can order it on Lowes Website and they'll ship it directly to your store at no additional cost. I just looked it up and it's $11.36

    Quikrete Walk Maker

    Or you can order it online at Amazon, but you'll have to pay shipping there:

    This is wonderful and I'm going to try it. I just have one question. Do you put down anything on the dirt such as weed blocker or sand? It looks like its just on the dirt, won't it shift with weather underneath and weeds will grow thru. Help

    When we put ours down we Wanted the grass to grow through in between like old fashioned stone walkways were in New England. However, you can put down layers of newspaper (wet them first, then a light layer of sand), or you can use weed blocking fabric. So far we've done this same type of walkway in 3 different climates, The Northeast, The Midwest (Massively Cold, Wet, Miserable weather with temps dipping 50 BELOW Zero) and the SouthEast- with temps over 100F for weeks on end. It does not "heave" if you dig it down halfway.

    You'll need about 1 bag of concrete per form "square".

    i LOVE this, we have old red bricks that are dipping in everywhere and I want to rip the whole thing up and put cement and this is perrrrfect. I do have one question though, have you done any parts where there is a turn or bend? I'm trying to make the walkway around the back of the house and then into a patio.... any suggestions?

    My husband and I moved to North Dakota and we have to put in a walkway if we don't want to walk in the mud.

    I know this is an old post but here's a link to making curves (turn/bend) in the pathway.

    YES I LOVE YOU TOO. You saved me a lot of money. I'm making a patio for my BBQ area and a walk way from my garage to my back door. Thank heavens. Bless you.
