Natural stone products are popular in landscaping for their colors, textures, and natural beauty. No two stones are identical, and transforming a pile of unique pieces of flagstone into a cohesive design is an incredibly fulfilling way to get creative with your landscape. There are plenty of ways to incorporate flagstone into your property, and Lehnhoff’s Supply has the supplies you need to bring your vision to life. Consider starting one of these flagstone projects this summer, and make sure to stop by Lehnhoff’s Supply for our wide selection of high-quality materials.
1. Make a Flagstone Walkway
Walkways are one of the most common uses for flagstone, and choosing your materials based on specific characteristics can have a massive impact on the overall aesthetic of your finished product. Flagstone can be cut into tiles or left jagged and rustic-looking. Use cut tiles to create a smooth, continuous path throughout your yard, or use uncut flagstone to create a more cobbled appearance. Cut flagstone stepping stones lend an air of elegance and modernity, while uncut stepping stones look natural and timeless.
2. Build a Patio or Pool Deck
For a larger-scale project, construct a patio or pool deck out of natural stone. Be mindful of the colors and textures you choose, and make sure to think about how the finished surface will look next to your home, garden, or pool.
3. Use Flagstones for Garden Edging
While some people choose to use wood, metal, or resin edging for their gardens, flagstone is a stunning option to consider. Adding flagstone garden edging is a remarkably easy way to make your landscape look more polished. Simply position stones either horizontally or vertically around your flower beds and borders, pushing them into the dirt to secure them as necessary. You may also choose to secure stones with mortar for low walls or more complex designs.
4. Create a Border for a Fire or Water Feature
Fire and water features elevate any outdoor space, but surrounding them with flagstone can truly make these features stand out. Surround your pond or fountain with a low flagstone wall or patio to provide contrast between water, plants, and stone. Construct a simple fire pit by stacking flagstone in a ring. Alternatively, create a flagstone patio complete with a fire pit, seating area, and outdoor oven.
