No matter what style you have in your yard, stacked stones are a useful addition to your landscaping and not overly complicated to install.
Here are the main uses of stack stones:

  1. Stack Stones along the edge of your property line or driveway
  • This is to create a defined line that marks a border or lets visitors take notice of an entry. Plant evenly spaced trees or taller shrubs and vegetation along the wall to add to the effect and provide a little contrasting color to the natural stones. You can mix in some additional color with small groupings of flowers too.


  1. Stack Stones around the flower or vegetable garden
  • This is to shield the plants from excess wind and create a charming setting for you and your guests. If the stones are relatively flat, place potted plants along the top of the short wall as decoration. You might also place other objects along the wall to add interest, such as an old watering can or bird house.


  1. Build a small wall or border along winding pathways through your yard or garden
  • You only need about two rows of stacked stones to accomplish this, but the effect will make the path more intriguing and quainter. Just add flowers and small vegetation along the outer edge of a wall. Allow the plants to grow fuller and spill over the wall in places to break up the line.


  1. Create slightly raised plant beds by stackings stones tightly together in whatever shape you wish
  • Fill in with some soil and add plants and flowers. You may also stack stones around natural areas to make a border, defining the plant areas and keeping grass from creeping in.


  1. Add interest to your landscaping by stacking stones make useful features
  • Dig out a shallow pit and fill it with gravel. Stack stones around the gravel to create a fire pit that you and your guests can enjoy. Or carefully stack a wider short column of stones on the patio for guests to use to place a drinks or plate of food next to a chair.


  1. Use stacked stones for your Feature Wall

You can use Stack Stones in variety of needs also, you can be more creative to make a unique and amazing outcome out of it. You can even do it in DIY but if you are concern or not sure to do a DIY in stacking stones we at Nice Backyard got your back as we deliver Australia wide, supply and install it for you.
Here are some steps that you can follow on How to Install Stack Stones:
What you’ll need:

  • Stacked Stone
  • Steel trowel
  • Neutralized tile adhesive (optional)
  • Angle grinder
  • Scraper or wire brush
  • Metal lath
  • Hand rake

Step 1 – Estimating the Amount of Veneer needed
First, measure the length and breadth of the surface where you will be installing the stacked stone. Next, depending on the dimension of a single veneer stone, estimate the number of stones you will need for your project. For the corners, measure the linear distance of the edge and divide it by the length of breadth of the veneer stone to get an appropriate estimate. Then, purchase the total number of stones that you have estimated.
Step 2 – Preparing the Surface
Prepare the surface where you will install the faux stone. Using a waterproof paper, cover the area. Then, cover the paper completely with metal lath.
Covering Metal Lath
Cover the metal lath with scratch-coat mortar. This layer should be 4-8 inches thick. Scratch the plaster with a hand rake while wet to create a better grip for the stacked veneer to adhere to. Let it dry for 48 hours.
Step 3 – Laying the Stacked Veneer
To make it easier to install, lay the stone pieces in your work area. Brush the backside of the stones to remove any dirt or debris. Arrange them according to the design you want and move on to the next step.
Step 4 – Fixing the Stacked Veneers
Apply a layer of mortar on the center of the veneer and then using a trowel, trapper it toward the edges. The layer should be 3-4 inches deep, as anything more than this will make the veneer slip and slide. Use tile adhesive for a longer-lasting bond
Step 5 – Setting the Veneer
Now, fix each veneer according to your planned design. Starting from the bottom, hold the veneer in place and press it down with uniform pressure.
Using more Mortar
Use a paintbrush to put mortar in the joints. Clean the excess mortar using a wire brush or scraper. For the corners, use a grinder to cut the veneer to fit it. If your stacked-stone veneer ever chips or breaks, you can repair it with many of the same tools.

With all this step you can now install Stack Stones on your own or with the help from Nice Backyard which you can call and visit anytime.
