Flagstone for Your Denver Home
Alpine Companies guarantees the highest quality flagstone services at the best possible price!
This Grant Ranch/Denver client chose to have the old front stoop removed and replaced with a new larger living area style concrete front patio. The exterior finish of the fire pit / water feature is a buff strip flagstone style veneer, mortared in place with tuck pointed joints.
Flagstone comes in different shades and colors which makes it a great choice when you’re matching surrounding stone and other landscaping, and is a favorite with many homeowners and landscape artists because of its natural beauty and durability that is unmatched. Common types of flagstone are slate, sandstone and limestone in Colorado because they match most of our existing rocks. While flagstone patios are elegant they give any area a natural look that can’t be done with brick pavers or concrete. Not only are flagstone patios durable and beautiful, they require very little maintenance and the older they get, they look great when they’re weathered and stained.
Flagstone comes in different sizes and if you want a flagstone patio, we’ll use a flagstone that’s around two inches thick. We’ll use sand and stone dust for a base material that will give you years of worry free service. This is another reason to use flagstone. When it comes to durability, few materials can outlast flagstone.

Flagstone patios are extremely versatile and flagstone works well over concrete or laid in sand beds as we explained above. Flagstone can be irregular shaped or pre-cut in squares or rectangles of almost any size. Most flagstone patios in Denver are buff, red, brown, with pink being one of the most popular. The spaces between flagstones can be filled with sand, or planted with grass or creepers as they’re called, or we use mortar joints.
Flagstone squares or cut flagstone are more expensive than uncut flagstone, and work well in small areas. If you have a small patio, it’s hard and time consuming to fit random shapes in small spaces.
We’ll meet with you at your home and draw your patio area to scale, and then decide what kind of spacing is needed between the flagstones. You’ll need a larger gap between the flagstones if you want to plant grass or a creeper in the gaps between the flagstones instead of filling them in with sand, and we can use wood timbers or bricks for a transition from the patio to your yard.
We can create great pathways with separate flagstones and you’ll have what looks like steps or stepping stones for a path through your yard. This is a great look if you live on a lake and need a path going down to the lake.
We can create beautiful flagstone patios using multiple colors of flagstone and placing different pieces of flagstone right next to each other so you’ll have a patio that looks completely customized for your home.

The entire patio was built with this hot tub in mind, Alpine made sure to grade the patio with the perfect amount of slope to make sure the hot tub would function properly. Under the hot tub Alpine used road base and compacted it thoroughly, as well as installed 4 caissons to make sure the tub would stay in place and not settle in the future.
The customer selected a gas fire pit for their project that was built entirely out of buff flagstone. With entertaining friends and family and their children in mind, gas is the perfect choice to quickly and easily turn the fire pit off and on, easily monitor the flame, and enjoy over and over for many years to come.
The patio entry and steps were built with flagstone and travertine, the choice to integrate both materials for the project was simple. Both the flagstone and travertine are a very long lasting and durable material, that virtually need no maintenance. Stone veneer was chosen for the courtyard columns, when choosing brick or stone veneer Alpine always tries to match the existing surroundings to make sure the materials used complement one another, as well as the landscaping.
The granite chosen as the dryscape material to surround the new patio addition, will serve two purposes. To keep positive drainage away from the newly constructed patio, as well as the mixtures of gray complement the colors of the home and the stucco chosen.
The final touches on the project consist of framed and stucco walls and columns with flagstone top caps. To make the patio completely functional at all times, we even installed exterior outlets in the stucco walls and custom exterior lighting throughout. The evening is usually the best time to entertain, so choosing the exterior lighting on all the stucco walls of the enclosed courtyard was the perfect choice.
When Alpine is in the design stage of the projects, we always make sure not to over build for the area. We take all the existing angles and roof lines into consideration, to make sure it is aesthetically a perfect fit among the existing landscape. The exterior doors used for this outdoor living space project were custom made, mahogany stained with antiqued hardware and hinges.
