Deco-Pak’s new LumiPave™ range of celestial themed stepping stones — each embedded with photo-luminous tablets — allows gardeners to create their own magical midnight garden paths.
The new products feature the next generation of photo- luminescent materials which soak up natural light during the day and glow brightly throughout the night. Three buff gold ø380mm stepping stone designs have been launched — Star, Crescent, and Full Moon, and two 450mm2 paving slab variants in buff gold and neutral grey. The slabs are available to order in packs of 60, retailing at RRP £7.99.
Deco-Pak Director Rod Slater said: “Whether day or night, fans of quirky garden features and families with young children will love these new stepping stones. And for garden centres it’s an excellent way of providing a unique point of difference within landscaping ranges.”
How to create your own magical pathway with LumiPave™
To lay the slabs, first dig out a path to a depth of 2-4 inches
(5-10cm). Next, roll out a layer of professional grade, heavy-
duty ground control fabric. This will separate your paving
and accompanying gravel from the soil beneath – but it will
also suppress any weeds. Deco-Pak’s own Ground Control
Fabric (RRP £7.99 for a 10 x 1m roll) is ideal. Just ensure
there is at least a few inches overlapping each side of your path. Tuck the fabric under the stones and then choose some fresh decorative gravel. For a purely magical finish during the day, Deco- Pak’s White Spar is ideal — long lasting and low maintenance, it makes an ideal aggregate for driveways, garden borders and paths. Top tip: Install LumiPave™ stepping stones away from other sources of night time illumination, eg street lights, for best results.
