The Beauty of Natural Flagstone

Flagstone Walkway Landscape Design El Dorado Hills

What I think of first when I think of the word, flagstone, is a camera full of snapshots of various designs of walkways and patios and garden paths, meandering towards a quiet pond or maybe towards a grassy area where children play. I love to see the varied designs and shapes and forms that flagstone makes because it is a thing of beauty. The colors and hues and hints and shades of the flagstone are what gives it that warm and homely feeling all over when you come into contact with a driveway or entrance to a house or home.

The intricate weaving and working of the flagstone lend an air of elegance and class

I have always been enthralled and taken by the various designs of flagstone that I have noticed in home improvement or builders magazines when I flip through them in my local home improvement store. The sheer beauty and attraction of this material is a selling point in itself. The patterns and designs that are possible and popular stretch from the geometric pattern right up and through to the angular and linear shapes and forms. Looking at these various designs is much like looking at a puzzle form where each piece of the puzzle or design seems to fit and sit perfectly into the overall picture. The intricate weaving and working of the flagstone lend an air of elegance and class and is hard to beat. Its cousin, the old and faithful red brick, is always a popular choice by many although it may be a bit more costly than the flagstone, depending on its age. But the wide spectrum of designs and intricacy which the flagstone offers cannot be outdone.

The thickness of the flagstone is another feature to take into account

It can be found and used in thin and portioned cuts, as against my preferred hefty and substantial chunks of superior stone. What appeal this offers to the eye bent on finding the most attractive and noticeable stone with which to lay out their new front patio or driveway. Another design that comes to mind when we think of flagstone is the wooden parquet interior floor design which is still so very popular even after its heyday many decades ago here in North America. It is the creative and intricate use of different shapes and shades which never fails to sell the flagstone to consumers shopping for a fail-proof and disappointment-proof product with which to enhance their home or garden.

To set in stone, literally as well as figuratively, their walk in life, making memories and remembering footsteps that climbed over the flagstone paths which leads to the warmth of their homes and heart of their family. Stone has never looked or felt this beautiful or admired. Whether you are thinking of designing for the front, back, side or border of your home, flagstone is the product of choice by myriads of homeowners and garden lovers who strive to add that definitive touch to their home. Whatever design you may be thinking of, whether herringbone, geometric, spiral, squared, diamond, circular, triangular, criss-cross, serpentine, trailing, flush, stacked, floral, pitted, or your own creation, flagstone will not disappoint but, on the contrary, will lift your fancy above every possible expectation.
