Thoughts on Flagstone

Posted by prkuhn (My Page) on

We are thinking of adding flagstone to a relatively new concrete patio with stairs, primarily to improve the appearance. The concrete looks fine but because we have so many leaves falling on our patio, the flagstone would do a better job of hiding the staining and such. What are pros/cons of flagstone in terms of maintenance, durability, etc.? Has anyone done something similar and loved it/hated it? Thanks.

Chiming in here because I'm also thinking of doing the same thing, only on a front porch, and would love to hear thoughts and opinions.
