Flagstone is a sturdy and durable natural stone material with non-slip surfaces; therefore, making it a great product for walkways. The word flagstone is not a geological term; it is an everyday term for a group of stones that carry similar attributes. There are many flagstone options, textures, colors, and uses; some of the most popular types including,

  • Basalt
  • Bluestone
  • Limestone
  • Quartzite
  • Slate
  • Travertine

Different design options can include a straight layout, irregular stone layout, curved layout, mortared, and patchwork effect. Deciding on the best option that is right for your space depends on your preference as well as, what works in your space.

Pros of a Flagstone Walkway

  • Durability: Flagstone is a durable substance that can last for centuries, as long as you care for it. The Roman Colosseum, Stonehenge, and the Washington Monument are famous stone structures that have stood the test of time.
  • Can Withstand Temperature Extremes: It can withstand extreme climates; therefore, the stone will not expand or contract as temperatures change drastically. It will also not crack or shift positions due to temperature changes.
  • Versatility: The versatility of flagstone allows for single stones to be laid, or laid as a completely solid surface.
  • Aesthetics: It’s available in a broad range of colors, shades, sizes, dimensions, and thickness: giving you endless imagination on design. Additionally, you can create a formal or informal look with the pattern and layout you choose.
