Thank you for your interest in my work. The flagstones shown here are a variety of sizes, from 12" x 12" to 24" x 36", with 12" x 18", 24" x 24" etc. The joints are no more than 1/2" apart. On the plan, the stones are 24" x 36" rectangles, with about 6" between each stone. I like to have my clients 'walk' the path as it is being installed to be sure that the path matches their gait.

what are the dimensions of the railing - We're rebuilding a small deck and unsure of whether to do railing on steps or not. Four steps lead up to a deck at front door. Height from ground to top of deck is about 30 inches.

In our area, building codes requires a handrail for more than two step risers. The deck itself does not need a rail around it until it is 30" off the ground. As you can see, we planted around the deck so kids won't be tempted to jump! Check your local codes for details: safety is critical.
