AMAZING PATHWAYS FOR YOUR GARDEN

 AMAZING PATHWAYS FOR YOUR GARDEN






Hey there my lovely people! How are you? Are you enjoying the beautiful days? I’m always here to inspire you and awaken your creativity. For today, I have a collection of  AMAZING PATHWAYS FOR YOUR GARDEN. Having a house with a spacious garden is great, but the hard part is keeping that garden neat and tidy. If you have a garden then you most probably have also some garden pathways there which help you get around in your green space. But pathways can be used in many different ways, all you have to do is get a little bit creative. We are going to show you some pictures that we hope will inspire you in redesigning your garden. In case you don’t have a garden pathway, but you are planning to build one, we advice you to be as creative as possible and you won’t go wrong. You can make your pathway out of different materials, from rocks to wood and even bricks. There are a lot of different combinations when it comes to garden alleys, be sure to choose the one you like the most and also fits the style of your home. And last but not least, make sure that when you design the pathway you don’t forget about the flowers and plants in your garden. Create a pathway that will make your plants look good and bring out the nicest colors you have in your garden

Amazing DIY Glow in the Dark Stepping Stones



Stepping stones that glow in the dark make a helpful and attractive addition to a dark pathway. They also don't require electricity, which makes them useful in areas where there are no electrical outlets. The phosphorescent chemical in them recharges in normal daylight conditions, and can glow in the dark for anywhere from about 30 minutes to 10 hours. They can be somewhat expensive to make yourself because the earth aluminate phosphors used in most glow powders are somewhat rare.  


  
                                                                        
When constructing tiles using a mosaic method where grout is used, the glow-in-the-dark powder can be mixed in with the grout. This will result in a glow over much less of the surface area, but should still produce a satisfying result, especially if earth aluminate powder is used. This is a handy method to use if you do not want as much light in the area as you would get if the entire stone glowed. When using grout that requires a sealant, make sure the sealant does not contain any agents that block ultraviolet light. The glow-in-the-dark powder requires exposure to UV light to activate the phosphorescent properties.



Paint is best purchased from a company that specializes in glow-in-the-dark products. Attempting to mix glow-in-the-dark powder into normal paint most often does not produce the desired results. This is because normal paints often contain UV barriers that block the light required for activation of the phosphors. Paints also do not have the right suspension properties to distribute the glow powder evenly throughout the paint, and subsequently on the painted surface. The paint pigments can interfere with the amount of light that the pigment is exposed to and can greatly increase recharge times for the phosphors as well as decreasing the amount of light that is given off. The earth aluminate powders that produce the best and longest-lasting glow do not mix well in water-based paints, so avoid these if you want a longer-lasting glow unless they specify that the aluminates have been specially coated.
