I spruced up the walkway around our farmhouse with flagstone. Although this DIY project was hard work it looks beautiful & I am so happy with how it turned out. And it was FREE to do! Sharing all the details of our flagstone walkway below…

For years now, I have been talking about finishing the flagstone walkway around our farmhouse.
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,Milwaukee 47109 600-Pound Capacity Flow Back Handle Hand Truck with 8-Inch Ace Tuf Wheels
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.
Now that these walkways are done, I have more time to weed 🙂 Don’t look too close or you will definitely see the weeds already trying to come up in our new walkway!
I will be back soon to share more outdoor projects & gardening ideas with you, including our strawberry patch, home orchard update & a chicken coop!!!
