Irregular flagstone patio installed with existing interlock concrete brick retaining wall. Irregular flagstone: Loose-laid patio set in stone dust with creeping thyme in grouts. Laid to encourage no maintenance plantings between stones for appearance and fragrance (when herbs are trodden). Moss for shady damp gardens; Mediterranean herbs for full sun. Weeds can easily be pulled or removed by pouring hot water in grouts. Pattern flagstone: Cut/fabricated stone in a variety of regular sizes called "pattern". Thickness is usually 1.5" to 2", suitable for formal patios laid on gravel and sand foundation. Grouts can be natural (sand/soil mix) to permit growth and natural drainage or hard with stone dust/cement mix, which will drain slowly and limit plant growth.
