For years now, I have been talking about finishing the flagstone walkway around our farmhouse.

Stone walkway with Wooden Arbor

After we added a flagstone patio & pea gravel fire pit, the former red stepping stone walkway off of our patio really stood out and looked out of place.

I also wanted to widen the walkway in certain spots, especially where it met up with our DIY wooden arbor.

I pushed back the cobblestone and pea gravel and began adding the flagstones that were left in the grass by the previous owners. Why they laid gorgeous flagstone randomly in the grass off of our kitchen I HAVE NO IDEA but am very thankful it was here!!!

I dug out the liriope that I had planted along the walkway a few years ago & gave it to some of my plant loving friends. I replaced the liriope with some colorful annuals instead.

Unbelievably, the first piece of flagstone was already in place under a red stepping stone. What can I say, it was meant to be!!!

Sadly there was nothing but dirt & landscape fabric under the rest of the stepping stones. I brought the flagstone around the house using our hand cart similar to this one on Amazon,

Without the hand cart I would never have been able to carry some of these heavy pieces on my own.

Because it was such back breaking work, I tried to add 2 or 3 a day over the course of a few weeks until I was done.

I love how our DIY flagstone walkway ties in with the gravel fire pit & back patio.

Now that these walkways are done, I have more time to weed ūüôā Don’t look too close or you will definitely see the weeds already trying to come up in our new walkway!

DIY Gravel Fire Pit Makeover

Just a few short years ago we created a stone fire pit. It is one of our family's favorite spots to hang out in our backyard, especially when we have large parties. We recently gave our fire pit an upgrade for less than $100 in just one day!

DIY Back Patio Makeover Reveal

We transformed the backyard of our farmhouse by taking down a deck and creating a sunken brick and flagstone patio. Back Patio Makeover - Final Reveal / sunken patio / brick patio/ farmhouse backyard / patio makeover/ diy http://lehmanlane.net

DIY Wooden Arbor

When we decided to create our sunken brick patio one thing that I really wanted to add was a wooden arbor entrance from the garden.  Our wooden arbor does a wonderful job of making this outdoor space feel more like an outdoor room.   This wooden arbor was fairly simple to make and we made it using scrap wood from the deck that we took down and wood left over from creating our wood retaining wall.

  1. I miss you when we do not hear from you! BUT I always think you are working on another great house project! FYI we have started using white vinegar on our weeds here in Florida . .Works well even in a garden sprayec MUCH better than Roundup that has been facing such serious attention. Cheaper too..XOX

    1. Thank you so much for your sweet comments Beverly! I am hoping to be back to blogging more regularly again, it was a tough school year but I have a lot of projects to share & really missed blogging ūüôā Thanks for the tip about white vinegar! I will definitely give it a try for the flagstone walkway which I still need to weed, ha!
