Setting plant stones: the instructions

The plant rings or also often called plant stones are made of concrete. Their great advantage is that they have a side toothing and thus make a very flexible structure possible. You should first determine the location and think about whether the placement of the plant stones makes sense at all. For this reason, it is very important to determine which size would be the most suitable for your garden. The best thing to do is to look for plant stones in suitable sizes and colors on site and then start planning.

Step 1

Each state has different permits for this type of project. Before starting your project, do some thorough research on this.

First concret the attachment for the planting stones and match the straight line. The whole construction will be exactly on the line and it must be designed very professionally.

step 2

You will then need a foundation trench that has a stable foundation. In order to improve the stability and robustness of the building, an earth-moist concrete layer has to be put in before the planting stones are set and the concrete only poured in before the planting stones are set. A concrete thickness that is larger than the plant stones is recommended.

step 3

For this you need a mason’s cord so that you have a straight line in the first row. To create a stable first row of plant stones, you should use a rubber mallet to hammer the stones into the concrete layer.

Step 4

Fill the first row with gravel. But it depends on how many rows of building blocks you plan in advance. For example, it is best to fill them with a third of gravel or the ratio between gravel and garden soil should be 50/50.

Step 5

If you already have the gravel level, then it is time to fill in the garden soil. Then you can plant the plant stones. The planting stones are not that big and you should put in a planting space cover as a final layer. You can choose this covering according to your taste. Lava mulch or ornamental gravel is recommended because they can keep the moisture in the planting soil.
