Irregular flagstone patios

Hello all I am trying to but some irregular flagstone 1 in thick for a walkway I am putting in. We need to cover an area of 485 square feet but I will not necessarily tightly weave the pieces to match each other and will probably fillt he gaps with 3/4 crushed blue stone.

The problem I am having is trying to price the material. It is sold on a stand up pallet., and I am being told, it can be anywhere from 1 to 1 1/2 tons in weight and cover anywhere from, some tell me an average of 80-100 square feet to others tell me 120 square feet. Cost is anywhere from $380 to $550 a pallet.

I am trying to compare apples to apples but the numbers seem to be all over the place. Is it because the material is so irregular? Can someone give some advise as to how to proceed?

Thanks Ike

Re: Irregular flagstone patios

Proceed by ordering 6 pallets. You will need extra stones, to be able to select the best ones, the one which fit with others in the best way. Save all unused stones aside, you may need them in the future.
