Fieldstones and flagstones are two of the most popular types of stone for landscape projects in the Tampa Bay. These versatile stones can be used to beautify your lawn or to create a relaxing outdoor living space.
Fieldstones are available in a variety of shapes, sizes and colors. As you might guess from the name, these stones are collected from fields instead of a quarry. Each piece of fieldstone is unique because it has been naturally shaped and weathered. This popular landscaping material can be used decoratively in a garden or as a building material to create structures like an outdoor fireplace or retaining wall for a flower bed.
Flagstones are thin slabs of sedimentary rock. These rocks are harvested from a quarry. Flagstones are cut into different thicknesses and sizes. Unlike fieldstone, you can buy flagstones that are the similar thicknesses and sizes. Like all natural stone, there will be slight differences in texture or tone between each one. These flat stones can be used as pavers for a patio, walkway, driveway or as a base for an outdoor fireplace. They can also be stacked to create unique landscape borders.
Laying a path or creating a patio with flagstone is easy to do. These stone are great to work with. They naturally adjust to the ground as it shifts and settles. If a flagstone paver is damaged or stained over time, it is simple to replace.
