I wish I watched this video first! After struggling with the first few stones I now have a much clearer idea of what it takes to prep and place the stones. I agree with Glassman a step by step that makes sense!

I searched for months for a video to help me with my flagstone project. This is the first one to take me step by step through the entire process from concept to fruition. Excellent work and thank you so so so much!

Fresburger says:

Very thorough well explained video, good job. About the decomposed granite versus sand. If sand works well for pavers why wouldn't it work well for flagstone? Is it because of the size and weight of the stone?

cody ralston says:

as far as construction you're right but I don't understand why you don't recommend polymeric sand or mortar for joints and if you plan to take on a flagstone patio there's no tool to use except a rocksaw
