You don’t have to be a master mason to create beautiful planters or outdoor fireplaces if you use the dry-stack method for laying stones.

Dry-stacking, using RumbleStone Outdoor Building Blocks from Pavestone, is a great way to build everything from outdoor fireplaces and fire pits to planters and benches.

That’s because it’s easy and effective. And the results will last.

To dry-stack stones:

  • Start with a solid, level surface.
  • Carefully arrange the first layer of stones.
  • Apply polyurethane construction adhesive around the outer perimeter to hold the stones in place.
  • Lay the second layer of stones on top of the first.
  • Continue stacking stones, applying construction adhesives to each layer except the top one.
