A flagstone patio gives an outdoor space a naturally finished look. In this video, Arizona Landscape Architect Pete Curé talks about techniques he used when installing flagstone as the primary flooring material in a large backyard remodel.
In this project, the flagstone patio extends from the house to include the decking around the pool. Flagstone is also used on a separate smaller patio, as well as some of the yard's walkways and steps. Complementary color variations in the flagstone are used to add interest.
