Step 3 - Lay Stone

The stone elements are laid to the finished level, as there is no requirement for compaction of the stone elements into the porous laying course after laying.

Dust on the surfaces of the stone elements can be cleaned with water. This water will freely drain through the porous laying course and porous base. This reduces the risk associated with overhydration of the laying course, and dust on the surfaces of the stone elements.

The stone elements are now ready for the application of the mortar.
