Stone Brick Monday, August 06th 2018.
Put the larger stones on the wall first before you start cutting other stones to fit.
When you cut the stones that go above eye level put the cut edge up, and below eye level put the cut edge down.
Keep the joints tight and the stones close together, this will help your wall look more attractive.
Use contrast for a better look, use large stones next to small stones and dark stones near light stones, heavy texture near smooth stones etc…
Place stones so the joints are not in a straight vertical line between more than two layers of stones.
A little color in the mortar to make it blend with the stones might be considered.
Cleanliness is important, keep hands and stones clean and brush off excess mortar before it dries.
Enjoy your new wall!
