For patios, it is best to use crushed stone rather than a rounded gravel. Crushed stone will pack together and not move under foot as much as a rounded gravel.
Stonewalls are a smart and relatively cheap way to add to a home’s decorative and resale value – permanently.
Stone veneer may be applied over any masonry surface, concrete block, brick, cement, etc.
There are two basic ways of laying or setting “flagstone”. One way is in a cement mortar on a concrete base; the other, a more simple way, is in Stone Dust.
First, lay out the area of the patio. Dig it out to 6″ below the finished grade. Use 1″x6″ boards to line the shape of the concrete slab.
Method #1: First lay a minimum of 1″ of plywood over the joist in 2 layers. The first layer should be nailed and glued to the joist.
