How To Apply Adhesive Mortar

Use a trowel to spread a thin layer of adhesive mortar onto the surface where the paving stone will be placed. The thickness of the adhesive mortar should be between ⅛ – ¼ inch thick. Next, hammer the paver into the freshly laid drainage mortar. Ensure that excess mortar does not squeeze out the underside, as it could affect the joints.
