The following stonework was completed in two stages. First, we completed the front steps/entrance and a few years later the stone patio area was built. All new stone used in these projects is from a quarry in Wiarton Ontario and purchased from Canlok Stone here in Ottawa.
Here is a short video slideshow displaying some before and after pictures of our work.
Stage #1 New Flagstone Steps & Walkway
As you’ll see from the pictures below, the original stone walkway wasn’t in the great condition and had narrow steps. If I recall correctly it was the original owner who built the stone steps.
We started by ripping out and hauling away the old steps, stone walkway and a few good yards of waste material. Next, we formed and poured a new concrete base for the steps and walkway.
Wiarton ledge rock was chipped and installed on all step risers. Followed by irregular Wiarton buff flagstone on all steps and walkway surfaces. As you’ll see all flagstone edges overhanging have a chipped natural edge/face.
Here are a few before and after pictures of stage 1.
