Will this work in a climate with snow? - I love this look! Would a path like this work in a climate that gets winter snow or would shoveling or blowing be too hard on the grass between the stones/cement?

Sidewalk pathway - I want to put in cement slabs into the ground as you have. How long does the cement take to set up? Could I pre-form the cement? bryanflake1984| http://www.mblandscape.com/landscape-design-services-new-york-white-plains.html

They are not concrete but actually 'Flamed Black Basalt Stone'. The size is 36 X 24 inches and 1.5 inches thick.

Falon Land Studio LLC added this to How to Switch to an Organic Landscape Plan
LawnThis is the obvious first place to consider reducing chemical applications. Lawns make up a large percentage of American homeowners’ landscapes. I love lounging on a lush lawn, and it’s a great surface for kids and pets to run around on. This image, from Swick’s Organic Landscaping, shows a traditional lawn that is maintained using ecofriendly methods.

One large sloping bed and steps through can be used to transition between levels, although the look more formal/less natural.
