Rustic Sandstone

Adirondack chairs work well on this patio because the legs are broad enough to span the wide, gravel-filled joints in the rough flagstone surface. Because the bottom face of each stone undulates as much as the top, material like this takes time and skill to install. You need to level each piece individually; you can't just spread a layer of bedding sand over a crushed gravel base and set the pavers on top, as you can when using smooth stone of uniform thickness.
