The design on this "garden" stone is only painted on. After not too long, it would weather away. I purchased this for my mother-in-law's garden, but she doesn't want to put it outside for it to be ruined.
The stone itself is a nice size and quality, but the design is not "engraved" into the stone it is more of a rub-on decal look which is a less-desirable look in my opinion. It will be interesting to see how it holds up in weather.
