Patios are a destination area for either entertaining or relaxing in the backyard of your home. Walkways simply put, lead the way from point A to point B. Dry Laid means construction takes place without the aid of mortar or cement. Bluestone and flagstone are the two general materials that are used locally. We are lucky enough to be in an area where we have an endless supply of good stone. Stone is either sold as squares and rectangles or irregular and mosaic in nature. There are many installation options with this: I can set the stones on soil for a beautiful garden pathway; Install crushed stone footings and hand cut all flagstones as a formal entranceway to your home, or I can even set large rectangular pieces for a more traditional walkway. Spaces between the stones are usually filled with either dirt, stone dust or polymeric sand.
