Installation of Potenzo Stone

  • Setting of the base course: Starting from the straighter side the Potenzo Stone units should be placed in such a way so that the edges of each unit touch each other. One should make sure that every unit is leveled.
  • Stacking and Filling: This step involves centering of each Keystone Garden Wall unit on the seams of the course below in a running bond pattern. The centering should always be initiated from the straighter side.
