Laying Patterns

The pattern you choose will have a big impact on the overall appearance of your design. Here are a few popular options to get you started.
There are many ways to lay flagstones and paving and your choice of laying pattern depends on the size and shape of the stones you are planning to use as well as your personal taste. The pattern you choose will have a big impact on the overall appearance of your design – just as much as the colour and texture of your chosen stone. From classic simplicity to cool contemporary, and rustic charm to urban chic, this guide will help you achieve the look you want.

NB. There will always be extra units left over. These are ideal for cuts and edgings.
