Creating the Block Garden Wall
Add liquid cement color to surface bonding cement and mix so that it hangs on trowel held at 90-degree angle.
Remove blocks and reset on 1l8-inch bed of bonding cement.
Stack remaining blocks dry without mortar; use running bond pattern to stagger ends; corners should be interlocked.
Thoroughly wet blocks so they won’t draw water from cement and cause inconsistent color and cracking.
Using square finishing trowel, apply 1/8- to ¼-inch coat of cement to outside of blocks.
Check for level every 3 or 4 blocks.
Work from bottom to top and hold trowel at 45-degree angle.
