Landscaping With Limestone Tiles

Updated:2014-01-03 10:49:51
Limestone is a long-lasting stone that looks slightly gray to white in its natural form. It works well as an alternative to concrete when using it for landscaping. Limestone pavers make for an excellent and stable walkway if installed properly. If you plan to landscape with limestone, take the time to do it right and you will have a path through your yard for years to come.

Instructions as follows:

                                                     

Firstly, mark out your paving site with marking paint or by placing stakes in the ground and lining the stakes with string. Visualize the final product and make any changes to the outline as needed.
Secondly, excavate the topsoil from the area inside your marking paint or strings. If the soil is firm, you only need to remove the top soil. If the soil is loose or moist, dig an additional 4 inches to reach solid ground. Use a shove to dig out the area.
Thirdly, create a grade with a rake and shovel. It is important to have water run off the stone. Create a grade of 1 inch for every 36 inches of ground you dug out.
Fourthly, fill in the area with at least a 1-inch-thick layer of sandstone and then fill in the stone with sand until the sand is level with the stone. Compact everything with a tamper.
Fifthly, place a 1-inch layer of mortar over the stone and sand that covers approximately 10 feet of space.
Sixthly, place the pavers on top of the mortar. Create a single row with the pavers and then place a level across the row of pavers. Tap any pavers that are not level with a rubber mallet until the pavers are level.
Seventhly, repeat the mortar and leveling process for each additional row until the area is completely covered in limestone pavers. Allow at least 24 hours before using the walkway.
