7. Dig a Spot for the Stone
Use a trowel to mark around each shape. Remove the first stone and dig out the grass and soil to the depth of the stone plus an extra 1 in (2.5 cm).
8. Position the Stone and Level It
Place a 1-inch (2.5 cm) layer of sand into each hole. Make sure it's smooth before placing the stone on top. Repeat for all your stones, checking that they're even and filling gaps around the edge with soil. To level the stones, add or remove sand underneath.
9. Allow the Stones to Settle
Give the stones some time. Allow them to settle for a few days before walking on them.
