Here is a List of Equipment You’ll Need: 

No matter the size of the space where the flagstone patio is being built, these tools are necessary to make sure the ground is level and the right incline/decline is in order to build the proper flagstone patio. A large amount of detail is needed for a perfect patio, which requires some large equipment. 

  • Mini Excavator – A mini excavator can be a huge help when building a flagstone patio. This allows you to dig up the ground where you’ll be laying the stone and leveling out the dirt. The area where your building may have tough ground to work with, and the John Deere Mini Excavator 17G from Lawrence Tool Rental will give you the help you need. 
  • Compact Utility Loader – The Ditch Witch Compact Utility Loader is the perfect piece of equipment for you to transport large flagstones from dump trucks and pallets. This will cut back time and man hours when building a patio. 
  • Plate Compactor – The Multiquip 18 Inch Plate Compactor is a must equipment piece in order to level out the ground to lay down gravel. You’ll need a plate compactor at several points in the patio build, so this tool is much needed in order to do a good job. 
  • Stone Saw – A stone saw is an absolute need for building a flagstone patio. When ordering flagstones, not every stone will be perfect, so you’ll need to cut edges and build puzzle pieces for the patio to look evenly and nice.
