Granite Stepping Stones
For all those who remained lucky to have spent most of their childhood days near riverside undeniably understand the inevitable requirement
With the gaining popularity, there are now fancier stones available in the market that goes profoundly by the name of Granite Stepping Stones for as little as crossing the river/stream on normal working days.
For ages, mankind has used the formula of placing such stones strategically inside or around the field to maintain water flow since an excessive amount of water could easily destroy the crops. And now, mountaineers and hikers are taking advantage of this primitive method to overcome a flowing river (forming a pavement instead that looks more like a bridge), which otherwise becomes an impossible task to do, while en route to their destination.
Why Granite Steppings and not bricks?
Well, for starters, bricks are deteriorating and will stop doing their job efficiently over a while. Unlike granite pavers, bricks are not water-resistant and tend to absorb a lot of water. Try placing bricks for as minimum as seven days inside a pretty normal water flow, perhaps in your lawn or backyard.

First of all, you will begin to notice they move a lot. You will then realise the slow deterioration due to the sharp impact of the ongoing flow of water. Water in motion is sharper than we think! Take waterfalls for an instant. A closer look will make you wonder what caused the formation of sharp edges on such magnanimous rocks.
Where could one use granite stones?

For those who enjoy gardening but are tired of the continuous maintenance that it requires, installation of granite stepping stones could provide a structure to the area as well as some relief from extra weeding. Especially during monsoons when the path tends to overgrow, turning it bushier & muddier that it is nearly impossible to walk without ruining those perfect pair of shoes, granite stones work as a saviour.
Have you got a lawn sitting formless with no clue of entry/exit? If yes, then one might use stones to categorize the overall area around the house. It is quite a walk to cherish while effortlessly walking over granite stepping stones.
What varieties are these stones available in?
Given the demand for granite stones, there is a variety you could pick your favourite type of stone from. Granite stepping stones are available in a variety of shapes & sizes i.e., rectangular shaped, small and large squares and irregular natural looking shape. One could also select a colour of their choice among Black, Grey, White, and Yellow.
