Flagstone path dilemma

10 years ago

My husband and I are doing a DIY flagstone path in the backyard. We have paths edged with landscape edging (the plastic coated flexible kind that you stake in) criss-crossing the backyard. We are laying the stone into decomposed granite. My husband says we can't use any of the small pieces (>10" diam.) because they will "flip up" and be a tripping hazard. Is this true? I see lots of pictures of paths on the web with small pieces in them.

Also, if we plant red thyme in between the pavers, will it "take over"? Will we need to set up a system for watering the thyme?

Are we over-thinking this?
