A flagstone garden pathway is a distinctive improvement to any outdoor space or yard. Because of flagstone’s natural look in regards to both color and texture, flagstone is commonly picked as an accent to existing outdoor patio locations where pathways and paths are next to other kinds of surface products. Flagstone is likewise a great selection for walkways because of its nonslip textured surface area. It is necessary though that the flagstones are set up equally to prevent trip/fall accidents from unequal stones. Flagstones are an excellent size for garden pathways providing simple stepping stones, and when dry laid flagstones create a permeable walking surface area that takes in water.

The first step in any path is to prepare your site. Smooth your surface, remove weeds, and outline the edges.
Concrete, aggregate, bark, gravel, and stones can be set directly on stable soil; paths made of of other materials need a base.
Sand is a good choice, but it can wash out from under pavers and bricks, making them settle unevenly. To prevent washout in rainy areas, layer sand over a 2-inch gravel base.
Many people also put landscaping fabric under any loose-laid material (like gravel) to keep it from mixing with the sand or soil below. Keep the fabric down by stuffing its edges under the benderboards.
You can make grade changes either with steps or simply by sloping the path.
