8. Backfill with drainage aggregate and soil as you go
10. Enjoy the beautiful finished result!
STEP 1. SITE PREPARATION AND EXCAVATION
Dig out the area behind where your wall will go to allow for
drainage and back fill. Then dig a trench 500mm wide and
200 mm deep along the line of your walls planned base.
STEP 3 . INSTALL THE FIRST LAYER
You must ensure the first layer is perfectly level. Place the
blocks onto the base and tap with rubber mallet. As you lay
the first layer – check that it is level from side to side and back
to back. Check the back of the first layer with string line. On
a sloping site, step the trench in 100mm increments to ensure
blocks remain level. Always start laying your wall from
the lowest point and work uphill.
STEP 2 . PREPARE A LEVEL BASE
Compact the soil in the base of your trench. Then fill trench
with WESTSTONE-BASE-COURSE or similar and compact evenly.
Check with a string line and spirit level to ensure your wall will
be built on a solid, level base.
STEP 4 . DRAINAGE
If your wall is going to be 3 layers or more high, then place a
“punched”drainage coil behind the first layer of blocks. Extend
the coil away from the wall and connect to the nearest silt trap.
Cover the coil with drainage aggregate.
STEP 5 . STACKING AND BACKFILLING
Brush the first course clean and place the second course in a
stretcher bond pattern. Ensure the nibs of the upper block
engages with the back of the bottom block to prevent
movement. As each layer is finished, place drainage aggregate
and backfill behind the wall and compact the back fill every 2
courses. Continue until finished height is achieved. Then place
capping stones on the wall to finish off. (These can be glued
down with construction adhesive if you desire)
