9 lay header string course top tip all the flagstones in the ag range are suitable for internal use. by using these products both indoors and outdoors you can create a seamless transition between your rooms - from inside to outside. you’ll need to seal the surface of any products used internally but this is a straightforward process using a suitable sealant think about laying a header course of pavers or setts see page 10 of a different colour and/or shape along the edge to create an attractive feature.  for more how-to-guides  and videos visit our website: when using a  vibrator plate we recommend using a rubber plate to avoid marking.  6 screeding 7 fill gaps left by screed rails 8 laying paving 10 cut blocks use a screed board a straight piece of timber to level the surface of your grit laying course. this can be done by pulling the board along screed rails laid at the desired level in the grit.  remove the screed rails then carefully fill and compact the gaps left behind in the sand. carefully screed off these areas to the level of surrounding sand.  starting from one of the restraining edges, begin laying pavers along one laying face. set up a builders line and ensure the lines in the pattern remain straight.  for best results we recommend using a stone saw to create clean cuts alternatively, use a hammer and bolster chisel, mechanical block splitter unless you are using one of ag’s permeable paving products, remember to allow a gentle fall in the eventual finished level of the paving so that rainwater will run off the surface into your soak-away system.  10 avoid standing on the sand laying course  once screeded when laying product we recommend mixing units from various packs to achieve an even blend of shades remember to wear appropriate safety equipment – including safety goggles when cutting pavers. carry out all cutting before moving on to the next step 11 bedding in paving blocks only 12 spreading jointing sand paving blocks only compact paving with a plate vibrator. this will reduce the finished level of the paving by the 3-5mm allowed for.  after checking and adjusting the pavers to ensure the lines in the laying pattern are straight, spread jointing sand and brush into joints. fill joints level to top of pavers notes our river stone paving requires a ‘rubber mat’ on the vibrating plate to absorb its undulating surface flagstones should not be compacted with a plate vibrator instead gently bed in each flagstone using a rubber mallet we recommend you use our ‘silver flagging sand’ when jointing all grey coloured granite aggregate products 11
