Installation Tips for DIYers

• Before you begin, check with a building inspector about local code requirements.
• Prior to installing the stone, map out a design on the ground. Be sure to choose veneer from different boxes to vary the shapes and colors.
• Install the corner pieces first, then work your way down from the top. This will prevent mortar from staining the stones below.
• If you discover a mortar drip on one of the stones, wait for it to dry before brushing it off with a whisk broom. Smears can permanently stain the stone.
• When possible, hide edges that you trimmed by pointing them up or down, above or below eye level.
