Flagstone Patios Bring Natural Beauty to Your Northern Virginia Landscape

Looking for an alternative to a structured, uniform brick or cement patio? Opt for flagstone, a large, flat sedimentary rock that comes in various colors and shapes. Flagstones may be sandstone, limestone, granite, slate, or quartzite, making this patio material a durable and attractive option for any landscape.

Flagstones offer numerous benefits for patio use. The stones create a rustic, natural look; you can even plant moss or flowers between the stones in place of mortar. Because flagstones come in a variety of sizes, colors, and shapes, no two flagstone patios will ever look the same. Flagstone patios require little maintenance and call for routine sweeping or simple hose washing. Flagstones can feature such colors as shades of brown, blue, red and even mixed colors. The stone’s natural texture even provides a no-slip surface.
