I'd like to build a flagstone walkway and perhaps a couple of small
landings out of flagstone as well. I'm young and impoverished
(well...not quite, just the way that most young family men are) and I'm
interested in what I could expect to pay for flagstone (I live in
Missouri). It seems to be a pretty difficult thing to research online.
Any help would be appreciated!
Around here they are hard to find and expensive, as every landscaper is
in the market. A couple of years ago they repaved a road here and as
part of that they tore out the sandstone sidewalks; people were coming
in at night and stealing the pieces, at least the ones they could lift,
and the contractor told me I could take the broken ones, but he had a
buyer for the unbroken ones.
Used bricks, on the other hand, are widely available and cheap, and make
nice walkways, but you need a good foundation to keep them smooth.

We HAD a flagstone walkway for a few years. It looked good, but here in New
Hampshire proved to be too dangerous in the cold. It tended to get a thin
coating of ice on it, but would appear to be merely damp. The uneven
surface would hold the water for it to freeze. Just my two cents
