The Different Types
There are two popular main types: patio and select. Patio pieces are smaller, usually 12” to 18” and thicker, and are most often used for stepping stones, outdoor pathways or patios. Because of their smaller size, they are typically palletized laying down, which helps prevent breakage during shipment. on the other hand, select flagstone, known as “standup”, comes in large, thin slabs of 18” to 36”. Because of their large size, they are usually palletized vertically. Flagstones come in many shapes and sizes, including rectangular and square. However, they are also available in more natural, jagged varieties.
