    Have any of you guys installed large peices of bluestone, 4'x4'? How did you get it in place? Did you have any problems getting it level with the stones near it, because of the weight/size?

    We do patios using blue stone, and either tight cut them or do them loose. Plan on having a 3 man crew due to weight, if u can get your skid into the area will save time. Level the area for the patio before you install the blue stone and then use sand to adjust heights due to natural uneveness of the stone.

    We usually put the stone done and cut out the area right around the stone , then get all the grass and other debris out of the way, lay down some sand and then drop it from about 3 foot off the ground. heh jus kiddin bout that last part but then we level that single stone and just keep on going, now thats for a walk way (not connected pieces) For a patio we do it just like pavers.
