Outdoor Design Incorporating Flagstone

One great way to get artistic with your outdoor patio is by using flagstones.  It is an excellent alternative to concrete.  Flagstone can be a diy project that creates a warm, natural outdoor look, as the best stones are often nice and large, and come in a variety of different colors.

There are many outdoor techniques for installing flagstones on your patio. The most basic method, you would simply lay out the flagstone in a pattern of a square or rectangular, as other shapes are more difficult to create.  Some people will create an outdoor kitchen for dining; others will add furniture to make it a place to relax and enjoy an outdoor backyard patio.

Check around for decorative stones, which come in a large range of color and pattern.  If you’re really lucky, you might even be able to find some hand-cut stones from an old farm, cottage garden or another flagstone patio.  Local ads in the area are best for people to share communication to give away old material.  You may also be able to find a photo or other ideas on social sites such as Pinterest.

You can design curves and angles into your patio by placing the flagstones in a herringbone pattern; this is a very common technique. Another option is to lay out your flagstones somewhat like the petals of a circular flower that marches outward, or in a spiral pattern.

Another stone forming design you might want to explore is called “wedding cake” – an eye-catching, complex pattern consisting of many layers of flat stones that creates multiple focal points.
