Why Build A Flagstone Walkway?
A flagstone walkway can be a pleasing addition to any garden or yard, no matter whether it is a city or country lot. As flagstone is one of the most durable and attractive walkway construction materials available, you can rest easy knowing that you are adding value to your property. A walkway allows you to avoid getting your feet dirty and also provides an interesting element around which you can plan your flowering plants, trees and bushes. A flagstone walkway can also lead to a hidden bench, swing, pond or any other garden feature.

What Is Involved In Constructing A Flagstone Walkway?
Our knowledgeable staff can help you with your construction project, from the beginning to the end. It is wise to take the time to plan a walkway, rather than simply embark on the project haphazardly. Consider the colour and variety of stone or brick that your existing structures are built with, and choose materials to complement them. Choose the area(s) of your property that you wish to reach, and whether you wish to reach them directly or allow your walkway to wander.
Take measurements and order the materials you wish to use. When your materials arrive, lay out the stones according to your plan. The next step is to prepare the walkway base by removing the sod or other existing materials. Once completed, stones need to be set and shaped. You may wish to add a complementing stone border at this point. Finally, repair and replace any damaged or missing turf. Our experience with stone walkways has prepared us to help you with any of these decisions.
Factors Affecting The Price Of A Flagstone Walkway
Each flagstone walkway is unique. Some key factors that affect cost include the choice and quantity of stone, whether the flagstone is dry laid or mortared, and the overall size of the plan. Don't hesitate to contact us for an estimate.
