I'm trying to keep an open mind for walkway, and even patio materials. I do a lot of flagstone, and pavers, I'm just looking for another option to offer my customers. What are some of the things that you guys like to use?

Anyone use the very large pieces of flagstone? Or how about decomposed granite with some type of polymer bonding agent?

How about travertine marble.

I'm a big fan of plywood :jester: ... And I even paint it any color they want!

Recycled bricks with a mortared paver edge "can" look good in the right setting but they are a PITA.

We do poured limestone sometimes which is basically crushed limestone and cement...but its all in the finishing.

Cool!!! And when they tire of it as a walkway then all they have to do is prop it up and instant fence. Sounds like a trailer park solution. :laugh: :drinkup:

I have thought about something like this, or possibly slate. Would this be something that would be set ontop of a concrete base?

Hey now, don't make fun of the plywood! I just got done using my plywood sidewalk of 8 months. Home addition project (nearly) completed from the winter coupled with customers jobs that pay the bills=my front walk just now poured today.
There are different concrete pours you can use. Dyes, stamping, etc. Just another option. For what it is worth, I am sure glad not to have to walk the planks :walking: to get to my front door anymore!:cool2:

So now paint it a different color, prop it up and you have instant fencing. :)

Purphaze- You know you might be onto something here. By the time I finish the pavers over the concrete out front, concrete pad and pavers in the rear, and additional landscaping, I am not sure I will have the cash left to add more fencing around the extended back patio. I might take you up on your idea. In fact, I most definately am. After all, $3 grand in pavers and materials, my labor on the project and painted plywood fencing sounds like a great combination. lol
