I have a customer that wants a simple flagstone area put in one of her large mulch beds. Ive never done anything like pavers or flagstone besides simply laying them for a walkway at my house and was wondering if I have the right idea going here: Dig down about 8 inches, fill 3" with crushed stone for drainage Put the landscape fabric over the stone and put 3" of the proper sand down and compact. Apply stones and sweep sand in the joints, keeping the gaps as small as possible. She wants to plant some ground cover type of moss between the stones so is sand still the only option? I know somone is going to rip on me and say that I shouldnt work for a customer until I know exactly what Im doing. This seems like a perfect job for my first and this lady has been a loyal friend and customer for some time now. The patio is only going to be about 10x10 and has easy access for the excavating and install. Ive been doing alot of reading on random websites so my thoughts are kinda all over the place and need some of the expertise this site has to offer. I got into maintanence about 8 years ago and now I have to start somewhere for patios and the like. I would never tackle a job that Im not qualified for or cant do an excellent job on and this job seems like its very doable, I just need some guidance. Sorry for the book here guys.
