Flagstone WalkwayA flagstone walkway can be a great addition to the exterior of your home or business. Flagstone walkways are versatile and create a beautiful and timeless access path to the front door of your home or business. The right flagstone walkway can invite your guests in, prompt them to go on a stroll through your garden, and highlight parts of your outdoor space that you have worked hard on.

Here are some of the reasons to choose a flagstone walkway during your next project:

  • Variety of shapes and sizes: These walkways can be placed in just about any layout. For ease of use, it is a good idea to make the path wide enough for two people to comfortably walk next to each other or pass each other.
  • Easy to maintain: Once your stones are in place, they are easy to take care of, especially if you enjoy the aged look that comes with allowing some greenery to grow up in the cracks between your stones.
  • Can create steps or stepping stones: If you don’t want a solid, flat path, you can also use flagstones to create stepping stones or stone stairs if your garden is not flat. Stepping stones of varied size and colour add visual interest and fun to your space.

If your family and friends or employees and customers are having a hard time coming and going, consider adding a flagstone walkway. It will be a practical addition to your space that also increases the aesthetic value of your property.
