You Need a Flagstone Patio: Flagstone Pavers Bring the "Wow" Factor

There’s no doubt about it: here at Lake of the Ozarks we live in one of the most beautiful areas of the country. Chances are that whether you were Missouri born and bred, or moved here from elsewhere, the gorgeous scenery is one of the things you love most about living here. And naturally, you and your family spend a lot of time outdoors, soaking it all in!

But are your outdoor spaces as comfortable and beautiful as they could be, or do your patio and lawn need an upgrade? Today we’re talking about flagstone pavers and how they can boost the aesthetics and appeal of your backyard.

What Are Flagstone Pavers?

Flagstone pavers are a natural outdoor flooring option. They are typically made from limestone, sandstone, or slate.

They can be used for a patio, a walkway or path of stepping stones, a pool deck, a fire pit area, or even an entire outdoor kitchen.

Flagstone Pavers Offer Aesthetic Advantages

Before and after examples of a flagstone patio vs. concrete patioWhy choose flagstone pavers over brick, cement, wood, or wood-grain planks? 

First, they are attractive to look at. They lend an authentic, natural appeal to your outdoor areas that other materials just can’t compete with.

Flagstone pavers come in a huge array of hues. They can be used as-is, in irregular shapes for a more organic style, or they can be cut into a variety of patterns for a more refined aesthetic.

A Durable Choice

Furthermore, flagstone pavers are durable. They can withstand all kinds of wear-and-tear that would take a serious toll on other materials.

Extreme weather and high temperatures?

Heavy traffic? Moisture? Acidic soil?

With flagstone pavers, you need not worry about any of these conditions affecting the structural or aesthetic appeal of flagstone.

Flagstone Puts Safety First

Flagstone pavers act as a slip-resistant pool deck on this patioIf you have an inground pool and small children, you probably spend a lot of time trying to prevent those kids from running on the pool deck. 

Plenty of materials that are used to surround the pool are slippery and therefore unsafe.

Not so with flagstone. Their porous nature means that water simply soaks in, making the surface incredibly slip-resistant.

Pavers Are a Wise Investment

What about the cost of flagstone pavers? The price varies, of course, depending on the area where you live, the style or type of pavers you choose, and how extensive an area the pavers are designed to cover.

The average price per square foot in the United States is between $8 and $20. While this is fairly spendy compared to concrete patios, it’s on par with opting for bricks.

And given the flagstone pavers’ durability, ease of maintenance, and aesthetic appeal, most homeowners consider them to be well worth the cost.
