Installing flagstone in our patio
Our project was
to improve the patio in front of our house and
around the BBQ area, where we had some lawn but
wanted to create an area for some garden furniture
and where we can entertain people.
Our project needed the
following materials 20 bags of cement, 4
yards of sand and 60 square meters of flagstone
(called lajas here in Latin America)
First step was to accommodate the area meaning to
level out the ground and making sure we had a light
inclination for the water to flow off in the right
included to reforze the edge of the area with some
stones to give it a terrace like appearance that at
the same time stabilized the ground.
The cement was
mixed 10 small bags of sand to one big bag of cement and
poured on the ground then inserted the flagstones
piece by piece.
cement dried out we cleaned each flagstone with a
The finished patio with the flagstone flooring looks
much more decorative than the lawn before, now our
next project will be to find or build the matching
patio furniture that we want in cement so it
withstands the harsh and humid climate we have here
in the tropics.
