Why Choose Flagstone for Your Oklahoma Stone Patio?
These large and flat stones are useful for a variety of projects. In addition to patios, flagstone is an especially popular material choice for pool copings and front entryways. This is partly due to the material’s slightly roughened surface, which provides a good level of traction even when wet. Any project constructed with flagstone will benefit from its natural strength, durability, and timeless beauty.

Customizing Your Flagstone OKC Patio
One benefit of utilizing flagstone for a patio is that the material allows for high levels of customization. For example, the stones may be cut into various sizes of squares and rectangles or left in a more natural irregular shape.
More customization comes with the way that the flagstones are set. Depending on the desired look of the finished project (and your current landscaping), this material can be laid on soil, sand, concrete, or wet mortar. If the stones are spaced slightly apart instead of next to each other, different filler materials can add additional customization.

Limestone, sandstone, and bluestone are highly durable, strong, and long-lasting materials, so each also has the weight and size to match.
