The Q&A Archives: Flagstone patio

Question: I am making a small patio in a corner of my yard. I have cleaned out the area, and plan to lay large pieces of flagstone with small drainage/decorative stone in between the stone. Do I lay a layer of the small stones first, then lay the flagstone, or lay the flagstone first thwen put the small stone in between the flagstone ?

Answer: Shirley,

I apologize for this delayed reply to your gardening question and hope it is still helpful to you.

It is probably easiest to lay the flagstone first and then add the smaller stones in between.

Thanks for the question. Best wishes for a wonderful gardening year in 2007. Please stop in again soon!
