Mosaic art stems far back as 4000 years. However it was the Greeks who took the pebble art forming to a higher level, somewhere in the eighth century. Since then the art continues to be created and seen on and around famous buildings, business establishments and the home of many people. In this article we will look at a variety of garden pathway pebble mosaic designs that we hope will trigger some ideas in your head.
You can choose to buy your mosaic pebbles online, known stores, or simple go about collecting them as some adventurous lovers of the art do. Keep each pebble sorted in separate containers based on their unique shape and color. To do this successfully you may need to wet them a bit to really tell their color. You will need to have your mortar, measuring, equipment and wheelbarrow along with all the other appropriate tools readily at hand for this project. Draw out on paper your pebble mosaic idea then sketch it in the exact area you will be creating your art design. If you are uncertain about how to proceed try doing a smaller, simpler project to ensure you really grasp the concept. Set out to work on an overcast day and ensure when you’re done you leave your work to set and dry properly.
The other option would be to hire a professional to create your pebble mosaic art in your garden pathway. People will stop to admire this delicately laid artwork so while expensive to pay to have it done, it will be a joy to look upon.
