flagstone patio

 I love flagstone patios... having them installed by a professional can be pricey.   Installing them yourself can be hard work but the payoff is worth it.   After a week of hard work we have our finished project and the bill  totaled $76.00.

Here is our starting point.  My Mom recently completed an addition to the family cottage.  She connected the two structures with a breezeway.   Not thinking so much about the back yard she only added a small cement walkout.. which you can see above.  After living with it for the past two summers we knew we needed something bigger to house the grills.
Securing the stone can be pricey if purchased from a supplier.  We were lucky to have plenty on hand from a past landscaping project.   Placing your stones is like piecing a puzzle and is what makes this a long project.   After you have completed this step spray down the completed area to settle the dirt.  I let it settle for a day and then went back through and filled the spaces with dirt and pea gravel.    We completed the center path by simply laying pea gravel and placing a stone path.
The last step was spraying the patio down one last time... this will allow it to settle with your dirt and pea gravel fill.


We still need to look for a better chair and add some pots... but after a week of work it's nice just to sit back and enjoy it~

I think that ωhat you ѕaid made a bunch of sense.
Howeѵer, think on thiѕ, suppоse you wrote a catchier title?

I am not suggesting уοur infoгmatiοn is nоt solid, howеver ωhat if you adԁed sοmething tо maybe grab folk's attention? I mean "flagstone patio" is kinda boring. You might look at Yahoo's home
рage and note how they crеate аrticle headlіnes to grab people to click.
You might adԁ a viԁeo or a related pictuгe oг two tо grab readeгs excited about everуthing've got to say. In my opinion, it might make your website a little livelier.
