Landscape design and a natural stone are two notions that cannot exist separately. If you purchase a natural stone, it will easily match your garden or yard. Flagstone landscaping becomes more and more popular now. Both big flagstones and small pebble will be good for garden design, as well as for walk- and driveways. As a rule, a flagstone is laid on a surface of one of two types: concrete or a mix of gravel and sand. The basis depends on the size and nature of the material. For example, granite plates are laid only on concrete. Sandstone plates are much thinner, and it is better to lay them on a softer surface: a mix of gravel and sand.
In order to make the area more sophisticated, use cut stones. Now the plates in the shape of hexagons and rectangular blocks are popular. All the plates can be of different colors. So, you will have to try to make an interesting and beautiful pattern.
Remember that basalts are usually black. Granite plates are red, gray, and yellow. When buying flagstones, pay your attention not only to the color, but also – to the size. Stone plates are usually made square. As a rule, they are quite thick. Pebble is often used for path surface decoration. Though, it is better to use it for driveways, since it would be very inconvenient to walk on it.
