    also do you guys make cuts to the stone when going around curves so there are not gaps showing? (when dry)

    i use masonry adhesive betwen the stones. i havent cut any for curves either and they stilll look good. tip get a 3 inch trenching shovel it will save some time and the stones set right in it.

    We lay it dry in the trench. Also imo it looks best when installed half in the ground and half out. So with EP Henry curbstone/edgestone about 4" in the ground and out.

    We ALWAYS cut for curves....and apply adhesive between all pieces to create a solid one piece retainer. (if they're not being mortared) You never know who will run into them with a mower, what kid will use them for a balance beam, or how much stress they will eventually endure....so make sure they are solid and won't move.
