Patio Puzzle

This week Studio Wildwood completed two Connecticut lilac flagstone patios in San Anselmo, CA.  The work is part of a larger garden project - rock walls, decomposed granite pathways, and plantings are also being restored.

The flagstone patio is one of the more challenging portions.  It is like a jigsaw puzzle that comes on pallets instead of a box.  And there is no guarantee that all the pieces will fit together!  With a little sawing of edges and corners, one can create a masterpiece.

The secret is to start at one corner and have all the pieces flow outwards.  The edge is set in stone - or is it?
