Flagstone Walkways: The Raw Choice

flagstones

Have you been thinking about installing a new walkway, but don’t know what material to use? In this post, we will let you know why flagstone is the perfect material for your walkway.

When constructing a walkway for your home, there are a couple of materials you could use. Some of them include brick, concrete, or gravel but one material reigns above them all. Flagstone is a natural sedimentary rock that is located near river beds in many states such as Arizona, Vermont, and Pennsylvania. Nowadays, people are using flagstone as an eco-friendly building material for different projects in and around their home. In this post, we will tell you why flagstone is a perfect material to use to build the walkways outside of your home. 

Designs

Unlike some materials used for walkways, flagstone can be molded into any design your thinking about. Each stone comes in different shapes, sizes, and colors, making it perfect for blending with any landscape. Some of the colors the stones come in are blue, red, yellow, white, orange, and brown so that you will have a lot of choices. However, unlike other materials, flagstones will work perfectly in any layout design you want, and it can be cut to define edges so your walkway will have a more finished look to it.  

Maintenance

One deterrent of some walkway materials such as brick or concrete is grass growing in between the cracks and damaging the material if it’s mowed on. Thankfully, with flagstone since it’s flat, any grass growing in between the cracks will be easily mowed away without damaging the stone. Also, flagstone is very durable and is easy to maintain. All you have to do is to sweep or clean it with a hose to combat any dirt that may accumulate on the flagstones.  

Durability

Flagstone, unlike concrete or brick, won’t get hot during the summer and potentially burn your feet. Also, it can handle being wet because its surface is non-slip and textured enough to make it suitable for a walkway around your pool. Never again will you have to worry about burning your feet or slipping when you get out of your pool on a hot summer’s day.
