Mary's Flagstone Project
by Gary J. Dowda
We did a 280 sq. ft. Flagstone porch. It is turning out grrat. We used your help from your website. Excellent by the way. I do have one question? We had to wait almost 3 weeks to grout the flagstone. I noticed yesterday that when we were cleaning the stone I could hear that some of them sounded hollow> Is this normal? We put from 1/2" to 1"of portland cement under each stone and mixed it at about a 2 to 2.25 ratio.
Included a picture for you to see our project.
We also did the walls to match the existing rock on the walls of the house. I think we did pretty good matching up? Also, the flagstone is Crab Orchard out of TN. It was the most flat stone we could find and it matched up great.
