Introduction to Flagstone

Flagstone offers versatile solutions for walkways, patios, pools, porches, and backyard designs, making it an exceptional choice for enhancing your outdoor spaces. With a wide range of colors and textures, flagstone allows you to craft a unique and breathtaking appearance for your outdoor living area.


Benefits of Flagstone

Flagstone’s natural durability is one of its key advantages. Able to withstand even the most extreme weather conditions, it proves ideal for outdoor projects such as patios, walkways, and retaining walls. Scratch-resistant and capable of handling heavy foot traffic, flagstone becomes a practical solution for high-traffic zones, including your outdoor living space.


Flagstone Installation Options

Flagstone offers diverse methods of installation, each tailored to your desired outcome. You have the option to create a flagstone patio, a flagstone walkway, or even a charming flagstone porch using distinct techniques.

Installing on a Dry Base
One approach involves installing flagstone on a dry base. This method calls for a minimum of 4 inches of 3/4″ gravel base, topped with a layer of concrete sand. This combination provides a sturdy foundation for a seamless and lasting result.

Mortaring to a Concrete Base
Alternatively, you can opt for mortaring flagstone to a concrete base. This method involves affixing the flagstone to the concrete and grouting the joints. This approach creates a secure and visually appealing surface.
