When purchasing your flagstones get them all at the same time, to avoid variations in texture and colour. Popular choices for flags include sandstone, limestone and granite. There are also a lot of imported stones available like indian stone, which is often a cheaper option to some regional stones like yorkshire stone.
Take your time to choose your flagstone pavers. A lot of garden centres and builders yards will have them on display for you to view. Choose something that will compliment your existing style and features. You don't want to spend a lot of money on the 'in thing' only to discover it has gone out of fashion in a few years time!
If the patio is overlooked the patio design will need to include screening. Walls, hedges, pergolas, and fences can be included in the patio design to provide a sense of enclosure and privacy. When building a wall around a patio it is a great idea to include a window through to other garden areas so that the patio doesn't end up feeling to claustrophobic. Windows in dividing walls create an interesting glimpse of the rest of the garden without compromising privacy.
