Help with Instructable Answered

Hello, I just made an instructable but I had a hard time using english to describe the process. It is my first one.

I just want to know how the 'asymmetrical stone tiles' as I used to describe them are called. I think it may be flagstone but I am from Greece and they have a complete diferrent name here, so I dont know.

Thanks in advance!

I see, but still I dont quite understand the difference. I will research it a bit.

Thank you for comment and compliment! :)

Actually, the correct name for your project using irregular shaped stones is called a 'fieldstone patio.' Flagstone is synonymous with sandstone and though sandstone is often used in irregular shapes too, your stones don't appear to be sandstone.

BTW: You've done a very nice job of it, too.

Kali spera. Yep both flagstones and crazy paving in the UK. But what you have done is really a very nice abstract mosaic. I'm absolutely certain you'll know what a mosaic is, being Greek, but abstract here means of no particular form or pattern. (Apologies if you knew that already.)

My recommendation is to edit your title to "Custom Flagstone Backyard Patio with Wooden Bench" When you have symbols in your title () and +, they sometimes confuse the search engines or how it is displayed. You might want to create a separate instructable for your backyard wooden bench to enter into the instructables woodworking contest going on. Good luck.

Yes, "flagstones" is a good word.

Jumbled paving like that can also be called "crazy paving".
