Patio Season: Flagstone vs. Interlocking Stone
Although we have a few months of cold weather left, spring is around the corner. We begin to think about being outdoors, enjoying the warm weather and patios! There is nothing like sitting outside on spring or summer evening, spending time with family and friends. At FSI Landscape Supply, we carry various patio stones to upgrade any landscape design in Mississauga. Patios can be turned into simple lounge areas, dining spots, or full outdoor living space equipped with entertainment firepits/fireplaces or kitchenette. Whatever the idea is, there is a patio stone for it.
Landscaping professionals and landscaping contractors in Mississauga are preparing their tool kits. This year’s trend is leaning towards being in the comfort of our own home. Homeowners are turning their homes and yards into a mini oasis. Therefore, enjoying and making the most out of their home as much as possible. A patio allows a homeowner to enjoy the outdoors comfortably. It can bring a sense of calmness and tranquility during stressful times.
Flagstone and interlocking stones make excellent choices for patios. Depending on your design idea, flagstone can be cut straight for an area that requires an even surface, or the stone can be irregular in shape. The distinctive shape pattern, also known as crazy paving, offers a natural and rustic look. Flagstone is available in a variety of colours and types, such as limestone or slate. The most beneficial aspect is that flagstone is naturally slip-resistant. The slip resistant quality makes flagstone a perfect choice for surrounding pool decks, hot tub, or water feature. Cut flagstone can be laid in various patterns, elevating the aesthetics of an outdoor dining area, seating, or living area. Although this particular stone has many benefits, including its durability and low maintenance characteristic, it is always best to ask your landscape supplier or landscaping professional.
Interlocking stone is another popular and suitable choice for patios. Interlocking stone is resistant to the fluctuations of weather conditions. If a few stones have experienced some damage, they can be easily replaced. Interlocking stones can be removed and relayed, leaving the repair undetectable when completed. Growing households in Mississauga can benefit from an interlocking stone patio. It is an excellent and durable option for high traffic areas. The number one reason for its popularity is a result of interlocking stones design flexibility. You can be as creative as you would like and come up with intricate patterns or a design that is unique to the homeowner.
When it comes to landscaping, installing or upgrading a patio can make a big difference.

Along with the extension of living spaces, hardscaping is another popular trend that uses landscaping stones to elevate the outdoor experience.
