Flagstone Path

Flagstone walkways always lend a sense of timeless beauty. Adjustable to any shape or configuration, stone takes the edge off overly geometric landscapes.
The Walkway

Stone is sold by the ton. A ton of 2-inch-thick flagstone will cover about 90 square feet. However, coverage varies according to thickness, so tell your stone supplier the total square footage you wish to cover. Have the stone delivered as close to your work site as possible. Gather the special tools needed, including a baby sledge, brickset, and hand tamper. Use gloves and eye protection when cutting stone.

What You Need:

  • Coarse sand
