Flagstone can be configured in many different ways to form the basis of walkways or pathways through your garden, or as a patio suitable for all manner of outdoor leisure activities.
Flagstone doesn’t require special care or additional treatments after installation, making it a durable and aesthetically appealing choice for your landscape. Any natural changes to the stone do not detract from the overall look, like cracking concrete does in poured patios and walkways.
Topical sealers are also unnecessary, as they can make the stone more susceptible to staining and discoloration by leaving no escape route for moisture vapor that enters from the bottom.

Flagstone can be installed in a variety of ways, with two being most commonly used.
First is dry-set installation, which is similar to how a brick paver patio is laid, with a compacted base and underlayment, using string to determine size and level, and a filler material, such as sand, between joints.
Second is mortaring flagstone over a concrete slab.
Finally, flagstone can be set directly in the dirt to create stepping stones to be used as a walkway.
Your installation choice will depend on budget and purpose for the project. A skilled landscaping contractor can help you determine the best installation method.
