If you want to add a bit of pop to your landscaping, flagstone can be just what you’re looking for. From jazzing up garden walkways to topping off patios, countertops, fireplaces and fire pits, flagstone may be just what you’re after.

In this issue, the San Diego landscaping experts with Juniper Landscape Company will talk in-depth about flagstone, its varied uses, and why it’s so popular.

What is flagstone?

The name flagstone doesn’t refer to a particular type of stone. Rather, it’s a method of stone installation. The stone itself is flat and is typically custom-cut into irregularly shaped pieces. The most popular types of rock used for flagstone are limestone, slate, and sandstone.

What are the advantages of using flagstone?

The flexibility of flagstone in just about every aspect of its uses make it highly attractive for property owners looking to provide a bit of personality to their landscaping.

  • While most flagstone comes in gray, red, brown, and green, it’s available in a host of other colors.
  • Water permeates flagstone rather than running off or puddling on top.
  • Because it’s resistant to acid, flagstone can be laid directly on top of soil or an indoor surface. In other words, there’s no need for concrete to be used in association with flagstone.
  • Because it’s resistant to heat, moisture, and heavy foot traffic, flagstone is highly durable and can last for more than 30 years.
  • The surface of flagstone is non-slip, so the likelihood of falls decreases significantly. This is especially helpful near pool areas.

To learn more about how flagstone can jazz up your home or business, call the Juniper Landscape Company.

    Juniper Landscape Company has been fantastic. Before them, we ran through three or four other lawn and landscape maintenance companies who did spotty and sometimes outright poor work, were not always reliable and who ended up creating problems for us in a variety of ways. That experience led us to subscribe to Angie's List... Read More
