It happened again the other day. As soon as I held it up for all to see, the crowd murmured, “Awwww!”

Every time I demonstrate how to install a patio in a miniature garden I get the same response, because a miniature garden without a proper patio or pathway is just small plants in a pot. But when you start to add the patio and accessories, that’s where the enchantment comes in and the smiles happen.

But first, let me back up for a moment.

When I started selling miniature gardens years ago I was placing marble and tile pieces right in the garden soil for the miniature patio. But when I watered the pot, the stream of water would always upset the wee tile pieces and I had to wait for them to dry out before I could fix the patio. It was more than a bit frustrating because it happened every single time I watered!

So I started playing around with different materials to find a solution.

First, I tried concrete but it had to be mixed before laying it in the miniature garden and I could not for the life of me keep the stones straight and level while it set. Not only could a fairy break an ankle, (think of the lawsuit! ;o) the end result looked too chunky and uneven.

With the Mini Patio Mix Kit you can mix and match before you set it.

Exterior grout worked the same way. I didn’t want to lay it in wet and I wanted to be able to mix and match the stone and tile before it began to set up and harden. And I had the same problem keeping the stones level in the wet grout. When it was all said and done, it look uneven and the grout looked way too slick.

I tried casting the patios separately and upside-down, mimicking the process of making mosaic stepping-stones. But all I got was a small stepping-stone that didn’t look at all like a miniature patio.

I felt like Goldilocks. ;o)

I went back to the drawing board and hunted until I stumbled across superfine sand at one of my local suppliers here in Seattle. The teeny, tiny sand looked the right scale for the miniature patios – it was the perfect ingredient I needed to fix my problem!

The Mini Patio Mix Kit used with the green stone sheet available in the store.

I was finally able to create a recipe that:

  • – went together dry, so I could take my time mixing and matching the stone and tile.
  • – stayed level quite easily during the process and it was completely level when it dried.
  • – I could use with brick, marble, tile, stone, pebbles, glass, marbles and even coins.
  • – held up to the freezing and snow.
  • – could not be washed away with overhead watering or pounding rainfall.
  • – won’t harm your glazed pots and containers, it can be removed easily.
  • – best of all, it LOOKED like a real patio in miniature!

And the Mini Patio Mix Kit was born! Yay!

Mini Patio Mix Kit for Miniature Gardeners Only

The Mini Patio Mix Kit is the “mortar” or “grout” solution that can work with marble, tile, glass, stone, brick, ceramics and even coins.

Now after 10 years of installing patios and playing with the Mini Patio Mix Kit, the patios have held up to freezing, snow, over-head watering, moss, cats, possums and kids. Not to mention a great spot for a cup of coffee or wineglass.

Note the Mini Patio Mix Kit is the “grout” part of the patio and you add the brick, tile or stone. The end result is a sturdy miniature patio that is about ¾” to 1” deep. After a few weeks of curing, you can take the mini patio out and use it for another miniature garden if you like.

So if you would like a no-muss-no-fuss custom miniature patio for your mini, fairy or
