Natural Flagstone Patio & Fire Pit

Willow Gates Landscaping
by Willow Gates Landscaping
The client requested a flagstone circular patio with a fire pit that would blend with the natural surroundings. We installed irregular blue flagstone slabs over a compacted stone base, using Gator Dust in the joints. The fire pit is surounded with ironstone boulders. The actual fire pit is recessed below the patio and lined with fire brick.

We modified the existing walkway, which was only a single slab wide. Pea gravel was used in the joints, and the walkway was lit with path lights from Focus Industries. Delaware County, PA

    What do you suggest for small yard with lots of oak roots? Pavers? Flagstone? Are there other applications?

    Can you give a rough budget estimate for the fire pit patio project (not including walkway)? Thanks

    Could you share a picture of the inside of the fire pit? My husband is working on creating a similar designed fire pit. Except the ground is comprised of limestone. Thanks!!

    Looks Great. Nice Work done. I really liked the Use of stone for fire pit. It gives a more attractive look to your surroundings. Flagstone Pathway is also gives brilliant look to your work.

    We have been looking for irregular Bluestone here in CA and it has a lot of clefts. The firepit circle looks like very smooth Bluestone. Did you just hand-select the smoothest pavers for this area or is there another trick to get them smoother?
