Flagstone Walkways Provide Timeless Beauty | Washington, DC

Feb 22, 2013 | Gardens, Patios

If you are looking to add timeless and long-lasting beauty to your outdoor space, flagstone walkways can be designed to fit the size, shape and style of any environment.

Flagstone is sedimentary rock, usually sandstone, that is often used for walkways, steps, and patios. Flagstone can come in a variety of colors including blue, gray, red and beige. Flagstone is often the best choice for an outdoor walkway because it is so attractive, durable, maintenance-free, versatile and adaptable. A flagstone walkway blends well with almost any type of outdoor decor, from formal to rustic. A simple walkway is great, but you can also expand on the concept and personalize your outdoor area even more. Here are a few ideas:

  • Connect your walkway to a flagstone patio. Like walkways, patios can be designed to fit any size and style of living space.
  • Stairs made with flagstone can range from a basic, rough-hewn look to a more formal and elegant design.
  • Make your garden more inviting with meandering flagstone pathways. You can even create your own private mediation spot.

For more ideas and to see the kind of quality work we do, check out our photo gallery of steps and walkways, or view our full gallery to see a variety examples of walkways, patios, retaining walls and water features that can be built by our experienced, talented masons. Contact us and let us help you start planning the outdoor living space of your dreams.
