I'm planning a project to repair my flagstone patio, which has several broken slabs, and some that are uneven due to settling/washout of the base. About 10 pieces are broken, but I've determined that I can cut some of the larger pieces down in order to replace the damaged smaller pieces. I may ultimately only need to acquire about five new slabs ranging in size from roughly 24"x24" to 24"x36".

I've never bought stone before, but my understanding is that it's sold by the pallet, which would be a problem for me due to not needing that amount for this project (or the cost). I'd love to hear some suggestions on how/where I might buy just the amount of flagstone that I need for this project. Is it possible that stone dealers might have odd lots around that they'd sell at a good price?

I do not know about your area, but here flag stone is sold by the ton--or pound--we weigh our truck---load what is needed--then weigh it again--then pay--

I never had to buy more than needed---make some calls---Mike---

Thanks for your reply. I added location to my profile, and even added an album for the project for possible future reference. With that last bit of knowledge from you I'm ready to go in to buy some flagstone. Thanks again!
