Why the coursed laying pattern as apposed to random layout?

what jointing will you be using. Not geoshite I hope?

 

 

Customer wanted courses rather than random. Il b mixing my own 4 soft one sharp one cement. Never used any of the new jointing stuff

How do u find laying the sandstone. I like working with it. When i first started i used to lay on gear abit to dry and had a few pavers not stick. I now lay on a slightly wetter mix. I also go at 4 sharp one soft. Seems to help.

I'll try the 4 Sharp one soft see how it goes, I use a slightly wetter mix too. I'm getting along with the sandstone quite well.

you need to add sbr to the mix and do a bond bridge on sandstone. Too many call backs later otherwise

You should use SBR in all your mixes. We lay and point as we go so pointing us not separate to the bed. Never had an issue with repointing since doing this. All sandstone paving calibrated and sourced in any colour from Infinate paving, best prices anywhere.:thumbup1:
