Decorative rock and garden stone path

Sunset Gold mica

A flagtone walkway can be a nice way to break up the unexciting decorative rock driveway. This walkway was going from the stairs by the pool to the changing room on the side of the house. But please use caution, rock pathways can be sharp and unfriendly to bare feet, especially if they are wet!

Garden patio with rock

Columbia River Sage

Flagstone can be a great alternative to concrete or paving stone when looking to make a seating area or walkway in the garden. This rock comes in various thicknesses and can also be used as a wall stone

Feature rocks to accent garden beds

Platinum Quartzite

Feature rocks can be a great accent to plants and flower beds around your garden. Available in many shapes and sizes and usually sold by weight. Rocks can also be used as ‘street number’ rocks by the side of the driveway.

Rock stepping stones

Sometimes its nice to have a path without the heavy look of concrete or paving stone materials. Flagstone stepping stones winding through a planting bed can offer a nice soft path and allow for a clean walkway as the same time.
