Big Flags


Big flagstones weighing over several hundred pounds can be moved by one person, even up hill, in the rain and mud. I had the opportunity to do some of this kind of grunt work yesterday as there was no machine operator available. The heavy 'square-ish' chunks of  flag move surprisingly easy while long rectangles and huge triangles are almost impossible to roll alone. I brought up this one for setting in the courtyard area of the dry stone greenhouse. The more easily moved square and roundish shapes could take on a more dominant role in the floor design if it depended on just me getting the flagstone to where it was needed.
