It’s seriously stunning.  Can’t wait to see the finished courtyard...

I love the rounded corners on this hand cut stones. They look great. What are you putting in the joints?

One part cement plus one part lime to six parts soft sand....(approx.....), but I want the jointing to be fairly close to the slab colour, so we will alter as necessary....

The acid test and something that Les and I were a little worried about.  Glad to report, not a slab moved....
