Why Choose Flagstone?
If you are looking for a durable, long lasting and appealing patio, consider flagstone. This product has been used for millennia and is available in a wide variety of colours and styles. Flagstone tends to blend naturally into the surrounding environment, providing a pleasing tranquil atmosphere in which to relax and enjoy the outdoors.
Designing Your Patio
It is important to always pre-plan any construction or renovation plan that you wish to undertake. This will provide you with a clear picture of what the finished item will look like, what is required to carry out your project, and how to cope with any problem areas you may encounter. Problems with designing a patio could include existing structure workarounds, planning permission, hidden pipes, wiring, or other internal considerations. Contact us for help if you are unsure how to plan your patio project.
Some Questions To Consider
Take into account how large an area you wish to cover, and what pattern you would like to use. Will the patio consist entirely of straight lines or would you prefer to include some curves? Consider what colour of stone will complement your existing structures. What will your transition zones look like and how will they connect with your driveway, walkway or existing patio area? Will there be any lighting included? Do you intend this to be a dining area?

Flagstone Installation Pricing
Flagstone can be installed in a number of different ways, including dry laid and mortared. This, combined with your choice of flagstone, will affect your project pricing. The term "dry laid" means that the stones are laid on a specially prepared bed of sand and gravel and the spaces are filled with dirt or ground-cover. For a more permanent structure, the base and joints can be mortared, thus fixing the flagstones in place. At Blackwell Masonry, we can advise you as to the different costs and installation times required depending on the project you choose.
