Lay Landscaping Stones

Updated:2013-08-23 15:27:56
Landscaping stones can make a walkway through the yard that is paved together like a sidewalk, or can be staggered to space individual stones under each step. Garden stone is sometimes used to lay an entire patio, or to make smaller slabs to support benches or birdbaths. Use landscaping stones to add color and design to the functional foundations in your yard.

Instructions as follows:

                                                             

Firstly, plan the layout for your project and purchase sandstone and sand accordingly. Measure the length and width of the area to be covered, or each spot designated to hold an individual stone. Purchase enough concrete sand to compact two or three inches under every stone. Purchase additional sand to lay between the joints of paving projects like sidewalks and patios.
Secondly, lay the stones in place exactly where you plan to set them in the yard. Make any necessary adjustments in the placement or quantity of stones to complete the desired design.
Thirdly, dig a hole to fit each stone that is deep enough to hold two to three inches of concrete sand and leave the stone surface one inch above ground level. Dig to a uniform measured depth throughout the entire bottom of each hole. Slope the hole for a patio or doorway entrance slab to fall away from the house to channel rain water. Pitch the slope 1/4 inch down in for every foot the surface runs away from the home.
Fourthly, set a border for a paved walkway or patio. Use metal landscape bordering or planted bricks to retain the sand within the shape of the slab.
Fifthly, pour and compact concrete sand. Pour 3 inches of sand into the hole. Hammer the sand with a plastic mallet to compact it throughout the hole. Measure for uniform depth and check the sand surface with a level.
