A bluestone walkway blends well into many landscapes. Houses of brick, wood siding, stone, cedar shakes, and stucco all go well with bluestone.
You can choose from bluestone with geometric lines or those that are free form. You can also dry lay it or set in in concrete. I prefer the dry lay method. It's less expensive and won't crack.
Here are some photos of what I consider lovely walkways done in bluestone.
Bluestone walk leading to backyard.
Walkway leading to to front yard.
As you can see, the area is very flat. Drainage was a real challenge. A combination of sloping and drainage pipe provided an excellent solution.
A meandering front with plantings on both sides.
Irregular bluestone was used for this lovely walkway by Rocksmith, Inc.
It appears that the stones were dry laid and sand or polymeric sand placed in the joints.
The design was further enhanced by the addition of a cobblestone edging and detail through the walk.

"Susan, what a pleasure it was to work with you. You made me feel like I was your only client - responding late at night and always so quickly! Your design is amazing and we only hope we can do justice to it when we plant . You have such fantastic ideas and you are so open to suggestions and changes. Loved working with you - now if you could only come to Canada and plant it !!! "
