Rocks of choice
Glow-in-the-dark spray paint
It’s well known that lights in your yard can not only create a lovely but soft spotlight, but it can also provide safety. When walkways are lit, they are so much safer. But is it really necessary to get your light bill even higher in order to do that? And do you need as much light as what is put off by common yard lights? You might be interested to know that there is an inexpensive way to bring ambiance to your home, light up the driveway and the walkways, and create a unique look for your yard. Glowing pathway rocks are easy to make and you’ll fall in love with the colorful design that they bring to your yard.
Glow-in-the-dark paint is available in many colors, such as pink, purple, green, orange, yellow, and blue. That makes it easy to coordinate the neon rocks with the look of your home. It will take some time to create the pathway rocks, but when they’re done, they’ll last for years. Start out by purchasing rocks or gathering them yourself. Most home improvement stores feature large selections of rocks, from small ones, to much larger ones. Often sold by the bag, the rocks are available in various shapes, and are super easy to paint.
Choose the glow-in-the-dark paint color that you want to use and have it on hand for the painting. Lay out a lot of newspaper, lay out clean rocks (wash and dry them for this project), and spray one side of them. After the paint dries, turn the rocks over, and paint the other side of each one. It might be necessary to paint the rocks more than once on each side.
The neon lights can be put back into the original bag after the paint is dry. Then, pour the rocks out of the bag, up and down the chosen pathway. The glow-in-the-dark rocks look great when you put them beside driveways, around bushes, around outbuildings, and around swing sets. They light the way, create a soft glow around the yard, and make walking around at night a bit safer.
Glowing pathway rocks are a fantastic way to add a new element to your yard but that isn’t the only time they are handy. Take a bag with you when you go camping and you can create walkways that make it safer for the kids. You don’t have to use tons of the rocks; just sprinkle them where you want them and you’ll have a glowing and safer camping experience.
