    Very nice, while I'm excited to move to the next level and begin learning patio and walkway installation, this is the work I'm really eager to learn, natural stone patios and walls. To me at least, that wall is beautiful, good work.

    Thanks for the complements, this is pretty much what i stick to doing it takes longer then pavers to install and can be a pain in the a$$, but i worked for a stone/brick mason actually they were 2 brothers for 3 1/2 years and learned more stuff then you could ever imagine. The pergola was custom built by a carpenter it turned out nice.
    Captains is right it is not veneer stone its pennsylvania colonial wall stone with 18" bluestone cap.

    BigW there is no pattern with random flagstone you have to know how to break up the joints and place different colored stones through out the whole thing all stones are sawed to fit so there are no fat joints. Basically like you said i just "wing it".

    Good looking stone work. We also get into some mortared stone patios throughout the year and would like your opinion on control joints. Do you put any in the concrete pad or have you ever cut any into the stone? We don't see control joints very often in these situations nor have we cut into actual stone/mortar, but remain curious. Any insight would be great from any of you hardscapers/masons.
