Your patio is your place of connection on your property. This is where the memories are made. This is where you’ll share food and drink with people that matter to you. Quiet mornings in the sun, afternoon reading or naps in the shade, and evening entertaining.
It’s an important part of your yard that needs to have flow and ease in access. Whether the ideas you have for your patio are formal or more casual, the materials you consider should look natural and provide you with both durability and safety.
Flagstone patios use sandstone, slate, or limestone to create patterned layouts or scattered designs leading to and from your back door, pool, or BBQ area. Ensuring the right look and finish and ease of use requires a skilled contractor that can take your wish list and make it real.
Flagstone patios have the benefit of allowing water flow in between rather than running off the stones adding an element of safety in conjunction with non-slip finishes. Flagstone offers the flexibility of wide spacing between the joints to allow grass or moss to grow in between if you want a more organic rather than a polished look.
Your flagstone patio can create a smooth finish for easy walking and furniture movement or a more irregular, uneven finish for a natural, rugged look. Mortared to hold shape or filled in with natural elements like rocks and stones give different looks to the overall design of your patio and are options that we discuss with you.
This process is a collaboration - we want to evaluate your space, needs, and even the patio furniture you choose and work on creating your favorite space as a team.
We’ll also discuss the kind of installation we recommend for your patio. Flagstone patios can be laid down on dry ground over a base of sand and gravel, or over top of a flat concrete slab for a more level design. Your choice will depend on the current terrain of your yard but also your price considerations and maintenance requirements.
From choosing your materials, to creating the right kind of flow and consistency, we listen to your vision and ideas so we fully understand what you want the outcome to be. Then we communicate this back to you so you understand each step of how we’re going to create that for you.
