    i have to give an estimate for a wall to be built. I have built 100 walls in my day, but never the slate style, chip and fit, if you know what i mean. i have to go about 1 1/2' high x 20' long. do you use cement caulking for added stability? and how do you estimate how many stones you will need? with the brick style, its a simple measurement, this i'm not sure, due to the randome lengths of stone. thanks.

    Contact your stone supplier and they can probably tell you how many face feet you'll get out of a pallet of stone.

    1.5 pallets will do it adam. drystack with no backfill for better stability. eat your wheaties that day. it's a pain in the butt. i been using this glue that mac hooked me up with. good stuff. i tested it by gluing my mother in law to a park bench, havn't seen her since. i'll bring a tube with me when i see you
