The first point you need to consider is to decide what kind of a flagstone pathway you desire for your lawn. If your heart is set upon a formal looking elegant landscape, get your flagstones cut in a rectangular shape. Such flagstones can really give an elegant feeling to your lawn and make it a place you would want to visit with your office colleagues and business partners. Further ideas complementing such a style may feature theses stone tiles laid in an interesting combination with grass patches.

While choosing flagstones, consider the ones that are made of the sturdiest material and ensure it’s non-slippery and durable. This is because you can use these flagstones as a base of your washer & dryer should you choose to do your laundry outdoors. You can also consult a professional landscaper and hire a constructor for the installation process. If your villa is being maintained by some private developer, make sure that you have developer’s permission in making changes to the lawn.  Same goes if you are renting, just ask the landlord and save yourself from hassle. We honestly don’t need such negativity in our lives, do we?

If you want to unleash the artist within you and tell your friends what you are capable of, we think that your front lawn landscaping, featuring a curved path twirling like tendrils could be just what you need. You can also use coloured flagstones featuring bright shades like yellow, brown or even red to mark distinction. Try irregular shaped flagstones for a more casual and rather interesting look. This is because life is not regular, there are always ups and downs in our lives and mostly things don’t happen the way we plan them to. In such instances irregular shaped flagstones can cast a good effect on your lawn.
