I built my first flagstone patio. It was very simple. I just dug a hole about 1 1/2 feet below grade. then leveled and filled with class-5 gravel. about 6 inches deep. Then filled it with sand about 6 inches deep. Then started laying the flagstone. Final step is to fill in between the stones with some gravel.

Looks great!! Love the colors. My husband and I were wanting to do the same thing for a walkway, will have to try those colors.

Looks good!

I did the same thing but /w a small path. I have yet to fill in between the stones - what type of gravel do you plan on using?

I just used some pea gravel. It turned out good.I will see how well it holds up. I think you could also use a sand/concrete mix if u wanted something more solid looking. or you could even use some black dirt and plant moss or grass in-between.
