A flagstone walkway is a great way to add charm to outdoor space while being very functional. It’s perfect for a garden path or to connect you to different spaces throughout your yard.
This tutorial is full of tips on how to create the pathway in your lawn, where you currently have bare soil or grass. And when you want either moss or grass between the stones to fill the gaps.
Materials For Making A Flagstone Walkway
– Shovel – Bow rake – Hand spade – Work gloves or gardening gloves – Nitrile gloves – Garden cart and/or wheelbarrow – Garden hose
Step 1. Remove The Sod Layer
First, use a shovel to remove the top layer of the grass throughout the entire area. Going deep enough to lift the roots and weeds is essential.
Step 2. Loosen The Soil And Lightly Level The Ground
If you are working with dirt that is very dry, heavy packed, and/or rocky like mine, then you should dampen the area before proceeding.
Step 3. Create The Flagstone Walkway Layout
The first step is to decide the overall shape of the path. Consider whether it will have straight edges or some natural curves.
