Lay garden stones step by step
Once the gravel bed or sand bed has been created and leveled, the stones are laid up one after the other. Each stone should be worked with a rubber mallet, so that it can also be fixed in the provided bed.
It is important when laying that all stones are at the same height, which is why the use of a spirit level is essential. So that the lateral lines are in an escape, it is also recommended to set cords that act as a guide.
When laying it is also crucial to consider joints. These should not be larger than one centimeter, otherwise the surface does not have sufficient stability. If the surface is provided with stones, it is necessary to close the joints. For this purpose, simply sand is spread on the stones and this incorporated with a broom indie joints.
Since the soil is still sinking a bit, it is advisable to scatter more sand along the way, which will then be flushed into the joints by wind and by entering.
