    Quick question about cultured stone guys. On a bare concrete foundation how many of you are using metal lath under your scratch coat? I know as per mfg install instructions it is not required but looking for the pros and possibly the cons if any of using lath on this application. I would think it would provide a more structurally sound base for the stone....but are there any reasons not to do this. (ie: thaw and freeze cycles)

    When veneering a new block wall we don't use lathe at all. A good motar mix and some brick ties, and I've never had a problem.
