5 DIY Flagstone Projects

Do you love the beauty of flagstone but not the price tag on hiring a landscaper to build your flagstone project? You can save a small fortune if you build your flagstone hardscape yourself. While no flagstone project is simple or easy, there are some that are better suited for do-it-yourself homeowners than others. Here are five DIY flagstone projects that only require moderate skills but can save your money on your project.


With a little planning and preparing, you can build a gorgeous flagstone walkway for your front entrance or garden. The trick is outlining your path first and digging your trench. Then you can position your flagstones like puzzle pieces for a beautiful stone walkway.


While bigger, patios can be simpler that pathways due to the set shape. Once the area is prepared, start placing stones working from the inside out. Once you get the outside, you may need to cut stones to create the right edge.


Have a slope that you want to access? Use flagstones to create treads up your slope. This is fairly simple, just requires some hard work digging your steps and placing your treads.

Fire Pit

Flagstones are a perfect surrounding surface for a stone fire pit. Whether you build your fire pit yourself or buy a premade option, you can build the flagstone surround for your seating area.


You can build a simple, gorgeous stone bench from flagstone. All you need is two similar stones for the base and one long, flat piece for the top.

Flagstone is an easy and forgiving stone product for DIY projects. With a little planning and some time watching instruction videos online, you can save yourself hundreds of dollars by creating flagstone hardscapes yourself.
