Square Cut Dry Laid Flagstone

   Flagstone can be laid one of two ways; either dry laid or mortared. The dry laid method is much similar to how we install interlock, and consist of:

  • Excavating down 11".
  • Back filling with 8-9" of Granular A Aggregate.
  • Compacting all the gravel with adequate tampers.
  • Installing a 1" bedding layer for the flagstone.
  • Square cut flagstone generally comes pre-cut in different size squares.
  • Laying out all of the flagstone to fit properly.
  • Setting the flagstone with screening. (Because flagstone isn't as consistent at man made products it usually requires for each stone to be set individually. This can be a bit of timely process as its done with lasers, and string lines).
  • Lastly we install polymeric sand in all the joints, and clean off the newly installed area.

  • Thank you to Steve and Ryan for the exceptional work they did on our front walkway, and entrance steps. To Steve for listening and coming up with plans exactly as I requested and to Ryan for the execution of those plans. The work was done in a very timely fashion with everyone smiling and courteous at all times. It was a difficult confined space in which to use large machinery but all went well with not one thing being touched and the work areas were cleaned up at the end of each day. Thank you again. We feel that the final result adds to the value of our home. We would not hesitate to recommend Nature's Own for any landscaping needs.
