what kind of stone this is? and color? do you use the sealer? - I have a small back yard 20x19. Not much sun shine. I like clean, neat kind of feeling, don't want to see weed come out from the gap in between stone (or paver). I love flagstone, but not sure what kind of color yet.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

7 Materials for Outdoor Floors — and How to Use ThemStone. Stone is enduring and elemental, taking many forms. Where a naturalistic style is most appropriate, irregular slabs of flagstone edged with dainty ground covers look right at home. In formal dining terraces, geometric shapes solidly mortared to a slab are a practical solution, assuring that the stones stay in place and provide a level surface. When it comes to selecting the right stone for your project, consider not only the color, but also its surface texture. Too smooth and it might present a slip hazard; too irregular and you'll have a hard time leveling a table (or walking in 6-inch stiletto heels — not a problem for me).Stability and safety are paramount concerns, so be sure to set the stepping stones on a well-compacted base with some of their mass underground to keep them from tilting and moving around. Check that pathway stones are large enough and ergonomically spaced so you can land on them without having to delicately dance from one to the next.The color of the stone should harmonize with the exterior of your home, other garden hardscaping and natural elements. You'll find a wide range, from nearly black to gray to white, and browns including rusty oxide-infused shades.

stone, As for slate, it's a great flooring material for outdoor use, but because it's sourced in fairly thin sections, it has to be treated like tile and laid on a solid (usually concrete) slab. And it's best to have an experienced tile setter doing the work. As for durability, commercial grade slate is a very dense material and you'll get decades of care-free use. As with any stone material, there's lots of variability in terms of surface texture and evenness, so be sure to get a sample that meets your needs and be sure the final delivery is from the same batch. I hope this helps. Here's a Houzz link from an earlier article. It talks about indoor use, but the application is the same.

Materials for Outdoor Floors — and How to Use Them Stone. Stone is enduring and elemental, taking many forms. Where a naturalistic style is most appropriate, irregular slabs of flagstone edged with dainty ground covers look right at home. In formal dining terraces, geometric shapes solidly mortared to a slab are a practical solution, assuring that the stones stay in place and provide a level surface. When it comes to selecting the right stone for your project, consider not only the color, but also its surface texture. Too smooth and it might present a slip hazard; too irregular and you'll have a hard time leveling a table (or walking in 6-inch stiletto heels — not a problem for me). Stability and safety are paramount concerns, so be sure to set the stepping stones on a well-compacted base with some of their mass underground to keep them from tilting and moving around. Check that pathway stones are large enough and ergonomically spaced so you can land on them without having to delicately dance from one to the next. The color of the stone should harmonize with the exterior of your home, other garden hardscaping and natural elements. You'll find a wide range, from nearly black to gray to white, and browns including rusty oxide-infused shades.
