INSTALLING ADDITIONAL COURSES – Place the next and additional courses of Cast Stone Wall in such a fashion that each block bridges two units below in a running bond pattern. Cast Stone Wall is intended to be built as a vertical wall system. Use a level against the back of the blocks to determine vertical alignment from course to course. Use a high strength, flexible concrete adhesive to bond every course to the one below including the Terrace Wall base course. EP Henry recommends the use of Techniseal Structure Bond Adhesive. Backfill each course as the wall is being built and fill the block cores with #57 (1-1⁄4”, 3⁄4” and 1⁄2”) or #67 (3⁄4”) clean stone.
CAP THE WALL – Cut caps with a diamond blade saw to fit, as needed. Attach the wall cap block with a high strength, flexible concrete adhesive.
ADDITIONAL TIPS: BUILDING 90° CORNERS – Full Face and Random Face 8”x6”x16” units with a finished end are available for 90° corners.
CONSTRUCTING CURVED OR SERPENTINE WALLS – The tapered shape of Cast Stone Wall makes it easy to create curved walls without any additional work.
CONSTRUCTING STEPS – Attractive steps, in either straight or semi-circular designs, are easy to build with Cast Stone Wall units. The block units are used for the risers, with the block caps or another material, such as Bullnose Pavers, used for the tread. Use the Step Filler block in step applications where the product will not be visible.
