WANT TO BE KEPT UP TO DATE ON OUR PROMOTIONS
We live in Canada, in an area called Slocan Park in British Columbia. We have always wanted to finish off our garden beds with an edging stone. After shopping around and looking at differnt stones and adding up the cost, we decided to look on the net for molds to make our own. We found your site. To start with, we ordered 2 sets of edging molds. Our first pour was a trial one. We were using a fine gravel crush mixed with equal amount of sand. The mix was 4 shovels of the sand/gravel to 1 shovel of portland cement or your regular concrete cement. The water was to the consistincey of runny pancakes. I used a rag and plain cooking oil for greasing the molds. After pouring we let tthe molds cure for 24 to 36 hours deppending on the weather. We did have them covered with plastic. After unmolding, we stacked the stones in there own piles so we kept each size in it's own stack. We also kept these under plastic so that they could continue to cure. We were so excited each time we unmolded a new batch. We just couldn't wait until we had enough to get started laying them in. We decided to order another double set so we could go faster. With 16 pieces being poured each time , the project went a lot faster. We saved a lot of money by doing everything ourselves. If anyone has any questions, they can email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org and I will try to help. I will send more pictures as soon as we get more stone layed in.
